Van de Beek needs to make the most of his chances to play at Manchester United to score points with manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, who is not said to have confidence in the Dutchman.
Not Bruno Fernandes, Marcus Rashford, or Anthony Martial, Donny van de Beek became the subject of the British media before the Man United match against Istanbul Basaksehir in the fourth round of the Champions League group stage.
After only playing 11 minutes against West Brom in the 9th round of the Premier League, will the former Ajax midfielder get to start?
What’s going on with Van de Beek?
Van de Beek is becoming a mysterious contract at Old Trafford. He was almost excluded from the club’s plan when he has been on the bench recently.
Van de Beek is stuck at MU
Many people feel sorry for the fate of Van de Beek, a talented midfielder who brought Ajax to the Champions League semi-finals in 2018/19. The image of a former Ajax star with a sullen face sitting in the stands witnessed MU meeting a deadlock in front of Chelsea in October, making everyone feel sad. On the same day, from his home country, the 22-year-old midfielder’s old team engulfed VVV Venlo 13-0.
Former MU defender Patrick Evra believes that Van de Beek is not good enough to win the main kick. The French player also emphasized that the Dutch midfielder was not a really necessary contract with the club.
Van de Beek is a very creative midfielder model. The talent of this player has been verified. However, the Dutch midfielder has a too “thin” body, the element is not suitable for the English football environment, which requires a player to have the strength to dispute.
In terms of creativity, Bruno Fernandes is the main dual in “Theater of Dreams”. In terms of leadership, no one is better than the Portuguese midfielder. When he needs a substitute player for Fernandes, Paul Pogba will be mentioned because the French midfielder remains a world-class star.
Van de Beek cannot compare to Fernandes and Pogba in terms of talent and class. Even when MU needs a central midfielder, Fred or Scott McTominay will be the first choice because they too understand the Premier League environment and possess a great physical foundation.
