UK Labour Certificate and cannot join.
Ajax manager Ten Hag is currently the No. 1 candidate to replace interim coach Rangnick to officially replace Solskjaer as United’s long-term coach. Judging by the current recruitment progress, the former Utrecht and Bayern reserve coach is ahead of Paris Saint-Germain boss Pochettino. United are confident that they can reach a deal with Ajax and Ten Hag personally, and they have begun to work hard to find some coaches with Premier League experience to form Ten Hag’s backroom team. While both United and Ten Hag have identified van Persie as a potential candidate, post-Brexit rules require all overseas players or coaches to be recognised by the Governing Body (GBE) before they can work in the Premier League. Sources say the ex-Arsenal and Manchester United striker’s lack of senior team coaching experience is a huge disadvantage to his application.
Van Persie made 105 appearances for Manchester United from 2012 to 2015, scoring 58 goals. He has been in charge of Feyenoord in the Netherlands since May 2020, initially as an assistant coach, training the club’s forwards under former coach Advocat. Van Persie starts coaching Feyenoord’s under-16 team in May 2021 and has been with the first team in training days with head coach Slaughter, but the former Netherlands international is unable to offer long-term senior management experience, sources Sources say the EFA may not be able to issue him a labour certificate.
After Solskjaer was sacked, Manchester United’s appointment of Rangnick was also delayed pending GBE’s application. United also applied for GBE for first-team coach Armas, whose 13 years of coaching and management experience in the American League helped him land at Old Trafford in December.
Sources told ESPN that Steve McLaren and Mellensteen, who were part of Sir Alex Ferguson’s coaching staff at Manchester United, are both seen as part of the post-Ten Hag coaching staff.
