With Jaap Stam, FC Cincinnati signed a big name on Thursday. The tough center-back played 112 Serie A games (for Lazio and AC Milan) and 79 Premier League games (for Manchester United) during his active time. Most recently, the Dutch coach Feyenoord Rotterdam.
Anyone fishing such a large fish will get media attention. Especially if the wrong picture is used in the social media post! Instead of Stam, the bald bald Tinus van Teunenbroek, junior coach from Ajax, was shown on the photo.
When Cincinnati noticed the lapsus and deleted the post, various other MLS teams had already had fun with it. Hollywood star Jason Statham, ex-Nati defender Philippe Senderos and even the advertising character “Meister Proper” suddenly became Jaap Stam (see tweet below).
Stam was not to be trifled with on the field. Outside of it – hope the media officers of FC Cincinnati. (dad)
