Jaap Stam names Best XI including Man Utd, Arsenal and AC Milan stars

Jaap Stam has named his Best XI from those he played with during his successful career.

The Dutchman is best known for his three years spent with Manchester United where he helped the Red Devils win three straight Premier League titles, playing alongside some Red Devils great during his Old Trafford stint.

However, the Reading manager also played for Dutch giants PSV Eindhoven and Ajax, as well as Italian duo AC Milan and Lazio, which gives him a great deal of talent to choose from when selecting a top XI.

For The Sun, Stam picked a 4-3-3 formation which included United great Ryan Giggs on a left wing, Arsenal, Holland and Ajax legend Dennis Bergkamp on the right side of a three-man midfield also consisting of Roy Keane and Clarence Seedorf.

Also included were goalkeeper Edin van der Saar, Rossoneri greats Paolo Maldini and Alessandro Nesta and Brazilian legend Ronaldo.
