Donny van de Beek is clearly not happy having not featured in many games claims Man United manager, Ole Solskjaer
Arriving Old Trafford, Van de Beek must have expected to be one of the major key role holders when United’s midfield is talked of but it has been the otherwise for the Dutch professional.
With just 10 league appearances for Beek, Pogba, Bruno, Fred, Scott and Matic have been the major men in the center role, contributing immensely to Man United’s current position.
Inter Milan had earlier on attempted to take advantage of the situation at Old Trafford by asking to own the 23-year-old on loan terms but United understands should Beek leave Old Trafford, his chances of returning could turn slim.
Just like every player, Donny van de Beek wants game time and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer understands this as he likened himself to Beek saying;
“I wouldn’t say that Donny is happy,” Solskjaer admitted. “Of course, he wants to play more, but he gets about his job in the right manner.
“We are doing well and have got players who are playing really well in his position.”
“He reminds me a lot about myself, when I first came in, that he understands my difficulties and challenges,” the Norwegian continued.
“I was the same with Sir Alex [Ferguson, former Man Utd head coach]. When he left me out I understood and I was happy for the team to win – and Donny is that type of guy.
“He knows he is important for us and knows he is going to play many games.”
Meanwhile we could see Beek in the center as United battle Liverpool today in the FA Cup after Solskjaer confirmed of his involvement in the game.
“He will definitely be involved in this game against Liverpool and he might be the deciding factor in the game,” Solskjaer said.
“He trusts his own quality. He is a quietly confident guy who deep down knows he is good enough and is just waiting for his opportunity.”
