Not coming into play against Paris SG, still absent against Chelsea, Donny van de Beek is struggling to integrate into Manchester United. But what is the problem? Teeth are starting to creak in the Netherlands.
The management of Donny van de Beek at Manchester United is starting to ask serious questions. Snatched from Ajax Amsterdam this summer under the nose and beard of Real Madrid, which had followed him for a very long time, the Dutch international midfielder came to strengthen a sector of play very well supplied with the presence of Bruno Fernandes and Paul Pogba especially. We expected to see him integrate this midfielder. This is not the case at the moment.
After the meeting against Brighton, where he entered only in added time, his agent took out the sulphate: “he is a replacement, I don’t like that at all. I myself would never have been able to come home to play only four minutes ”. A media release that has nothing to do with Patrice Evra, always very present when it comes to commenting on the news of his former training.
” I think his agent should shut his mouth. (…) When you buy a player, it means that you need them to win the championship. Will Van de Beek win the championship for us? No », Had dropped the ex-left side. His coach, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, had however indicated that he would have playing time. Against Paris SG, we did not see him and against Chelsea this weekend either.
Present against RB Leipzig?
But at home, we are also seriously starting to tense up. ” What was he recruited for? I listened to Solskjaer’s press conference and he had nothing but praise for Donny. Still, he didn’t even offer her a cameo appearance. He bought it to strengthen the team. Why not use this bench depth? “, Fumed Danny Blind, the former manager of the Netherlands, in comments reported by The Telegraph*.
In this midweek, the Red Devils will once again face a European team by hosting RB Leipzig, as part of the Champions League matchday two. Maybe the Dutchman will finally have his chance. It would be a shame to lose psychologically such a talented element when the season, in terms of calendar, already promises to be tough for all continental teams.
