Donny van de Beek backed by Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to make the grade at Old Trafford in spite of a poor start to his Red Devils career.
Having been an unused substitute against Leicester City, Wolverhampton Wanderers, and Aston Villa the 23-year-old has not played in the Premier League since December 20th.
Solskjaer, however, has insisted that as he settles at the club, the Dutchman will “grow more and more”.
“Donny has played well when he’s had the chance. I think we are too quick sometimes to jump on, ‘Oh he’s not playing, it’s a failure’. But with Victor [Lindelof] and Fred as examples, it takes a little bit of time and now they are massively important players in our squad, in our team, which will be the same with Donny.” the Daily Mail quotes Solskjaer as saying.
“He has come in and he is in a midfield group there with quality, challenging with Bruno (Fernandes), Juan (Mata) and Jesse (Lingard). I have loads of No 10s, loads of central midfielders with Paul (Pogba), Nemanja (Vidic), Scott (McTominay) and Fred, and Donny has done well when he has come in.”
“He is always ready, he always works hard in training, he’s positive and he will make difference in many games for us this season. He will grow more and more for next year.”
