“I don’t know what’s going to happen in the future which I think is very important for myself and for the club.
“If you want to do something, you need to have a plan for what you eventually want to achieve.
“You need to know what you’re going to do with the team, the staff and the structure of the club.
“If it’s not clear where we are going towards the end of the season then people need to make up their minds for what they want to do.”
Stam’s contract is up at the end of the season and although a new contract is not on his mind, the Dutchman insists he is still thinking about his future.
The 44-year-old added: “My contract is not on my mind at the minute.I’m not thinking about contracts yet, but I’m thinking about the future – it’s very important for myself.
“My ambition is clear – making steps within a couple of seasons to go up to the Premier League. There needs to be a plan in getting there.
“But is there a plan if we don’t go up, can we make changes over players or certain things and what happens then?
“I need to think about it and if that’s what I want.”
