Donny Van de Beek headed Manchester United to a Champions League victory right without starting a Premier League game.
As Istanbul Basaksehir thrashed in the Champions League by Manchester United, Donny van de Beek thinks his deployment in a deeper position worked well.
Van de Beek still feels relaxed and thinks the method was a positive one although he loves playing in a more sophisticated position, in a deeper role.
“It worked really well,” Van de Beek, a £40million signing from Ajax, said to MUTV.
“Some games I play number 10 and sometimes the coach needs me in the control position.”
“That is fine for me because before when I played at Ajax, I was playing in those positions, so it is okay.”
“It was a good reaction from the away game. To win 4-1 at home I think you can be happy. The first half was really good especially the first 30 minutes and we played nice football and scored nice goals.”
“In the second half we lost too many balls and gave them some chances but the last five minutes we controlled the game again.”
