Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has reassured Donny van de Beek that his time will come at Manchester United after he was an unused substitute in Saturday’s draw with Chelsea.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer said “Don’t worry about that. He’ll get his games. Don’t worry about that. It’s easy to say who should be playing and more difficult to say who shouldn’t.”
United have been in fine form since the international break – beating Newcastle 4-1 and recording another memorable, late victory at Paris Saint-Germain – but the goals and drama dried up completely in a dull, goalless stalemate at a rain-soaked Old Trafford. United did have the better of the chances, though, with debutant Edinson Cavani coming close with his first touch after being brought on. One man who didn’t get off the bench, however, was Van de Beek, who is the only midfielder in the United squad yet to have lined up for a Premier League match, despite having impressed when he has played.
Gary Neville and Patrice Evra questioned United’s decision to sign Van de Beek while they were on punditry and co-commentary duties respectively for the Chelsea game but Solskjaer is adamant Van de Beek will prove useful.
