Jakob "Jaap" Stam (Dutch pronunciation: [ˈjaːp ˈstɑm]; born 17 July 1972) is a Dutch football manager and former player who last managed Reading. Stam played for several European clubs including PSV Eindhoven, Manchester United, Lazio, Milan and Ajax before retiring in October 2007. As well as club trophies, he won several personal awards, including being voted the best defender in the 1998–99 and 1999–2000 UEFA Champions League.[3] A large centre back, he was known for possessing "a rare combination of speed, strength and ball-playing ability",[4] as well as an excellent positional sense.[5] Due to his wide range of skills, he was also capable of playing as a full back on the right flank.[6][7] Stam played 67 international matches for the Netherlands, scoring three goals. He was in their squads for three UEFA European Championships and the 1998 FIFA World Cup.

Club career[edit] Early career[edit] Born in Kampen, Overijssel,[1] Stam started his career with local amateur football club DOS Kampen. On 15 August 1992, Stam made his professional debut for FC Zwolle
FC Zwolle
in a 1–1 draw against SC Heracles in the Eerste Divisie. He became a first team regular right away and moved to Eredivisie
Eredivisie
side Cambuur Leeuwarden for the following season, but relegated in his first season which brought him back into the Eerste Divisie. Two seasons at Cambuur earned him a transfer to Eredivisie
Eredivisie
side Willem II. At Willem II, he immediately impressed at the Eredivisie
Eredivisie
level, which meant his final breakthrough. A shock 1–0 home victory over Ajax led to Stam's transfer to PSV Eindhoven in the same season in which they eventually won the KNVB Cup, his first professional trophy. PSV[edit] Stam was a key player for PSV in the 1996–97 season, as the team won the Eredivisie
Eredivisie
Championship and the Johan Cruyff
Johan Cruyff
Shield. Individually, Stam won the VVCS Footballer of the Year award. In 1998, Stam became the then most expensive Dutch football player in history and the most expensive defender in history when Manchester United bought him for £10.6 million. Manchester United[edit] Stam spent three seasons at Manchester United, during which time United won three Premier League
Premier League
titles, one FA Cup, the Intercontinental Cup and the UEFA Champions League. He scored his only goal for the club in a 6–2 away victory against Leicester City.[8] Early in the 2001–02 season, Stam was controversially sold to Lazio in Italy after Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson
Alex Ferguson
was reportedly furious with allegations Stam had made in his autobiography Head to Head about himself and the club. Stam made numerous statements in the book about his views on opposing players, and notoriously alleged that Ferguson's approach to buy him was done without the permission of PSV.[9] Laurent Blanc
Laurent Blanc
was signed as his replacement. In 2007, however, Ferguson described the decision to sell Stam as an error: "At the time he had just come back from an achilles injury and we thought he had just lost a little bit. We got the offer from Lazio, £16.5m for a centre back who was 29. It was an offer I couldn't refuse. But in playing terms it was a mistake. He is still playing for Ajax at a really good level."[10] On the financial report, Manchester United announced the fee was £15.3 million;[11] Lazio declared the fee was £16 million.[12] Lazio[edit] During his time with Lazio, Stam was found guilty of having the banned steroid nandrolone in his system following a Serie A
Serie A
game,[13] and received a five-month ban, which was eventually reduced by a month after appeals.[14] He was the second Lazio player suspended in 2001, after Fernando Couto. Stam returned to be an integral part of a Lazio side that struggled financially, but still retained its status as a top club in spite of several top players leaving. In his last season at the club, he won the Coppa Italia. Milan[edit] Stam joined Milan after UEFA Euro 2004. He reached his second Champions League final with the Rossoneri in 2005, but was a runner-up after his team was defeated by Liverpool in a penalty shootout.[15] Ajax[edit] On 30 January 2006, it was announced that he would return to the Eredivisie
Eredivisie
and play for Ajax, where he signed a two-year contract for a €2.5 million transfer fee. Stam was named team captain upon his arrival at the club. In his first season, he won both the Johan Cruijff-schaal and the KNVB Cup; another Johan Cruijff-schaal was added to his trophies at the start of the 2007–08 season. On 29 October 2007, Stam announced his retirement from professional football with immediate effect after playing six league games for Ajax in 2007–08. His last game was in a 0–0 draw against NEC on 20 October 2007. International career[edit]

Stam made his debut for the Netherlands
Netherlands
on 24 April 1996 in a 1–0 defeat to Germany. He was also an important player in the Dutch team that finished fourth in the 1998 FIFA World Cup. During UEFA Euro 2000, he once again reached the semi-finals with the Dutch team, hosted in his home country and Belgium. Stam missed an important penalty kick in the penalty shootout in the semi-finals, which led to defeat against Italy. Stam reached his third semi-finals in an international competition with his nation at Euro 2004 in Portugal and retired from international football after the tournament. The reason cited for his international retirement was that he wanted to focus on his new team, Milan, as well as his family. In total, he played 67 matches for the Netherlands, scoring three goals. Post career[edit] In October 2008, Stam returned to Manchester United as a scout for the club, responsible for most of South America.[16][17] Coaching and managerial career[edit] In 2011, Stam became an assistant coach for PEC Zwolle, a position he held for two seasons after Kieron Hogendoorn vacated the role. Following his stint with Zwolle, Stam took a three-year contract with Ajax as an assistant coach, and as defensive trainer starting in the 2013–14 Eredivisie
Eredivisie
season.[18] On 13 June 2016, Stam was appointed as manager of English Championship side Reading on an initial two-year contract.[19] Stam enjoyed a successful first season with the club, leading them to the Championship play-offs. On 4 July 2017, Stam signed a new two-year contract with Reading, keeping him at the club until 2019.[20] On 21 March 2018, Reading announced that Stam had left the club with immediate effect.[21] Soccer Aid[edit] Stam has been involved with Soccer Aid, which puts celebrities and football legends together in two teams (England and Rest of the World) for a charity game in aid of Unicef. Stam has appeared in four Soccer Aid matches 2008, 2012, 2014 and 2016.[22] Career statistics[edit] Club[edit] [23][24]
