Patrice Evra has told Donny van de Beek Manchester United don’t need him and questioned the club’s decision to bring him in.
Patrice Evra said “I saw what I used to see. We didn’t create a big chance to win in the last 15 minutes. A team like Man United needs to be in charge, they need to be in control of the game, not waiting for the last 15 minutes to bring on Paul [Pogba] and [Edinson] Cavani. Maybe they should start, maybe not. I just want to see the best players play. We’re talking about Van de Beek, nothing against the kid, but why has he bought him? He’s watching the game from the stand every game. We don’t need him, that’s the truth.”
Van de Beek was an unused substitute in United’s bore draw with Chelsea on Saturday and the Dutchman is the only central midfielder in the squad not to have started a league game this season. When Ole Gunnar Solskjaer did turn to his bench to try and change the game against Chelsea, he brought on Edinson Cavani, Paul Pogba and Mason Greenwood, with Van de Beek looking glum in the stands as the Sky cameras focused on him as Solskjaer prepared to use Greenwood as his final substitute. Evra, who is gaining a reputation for his no-holds-barred punditry, said United simply didn’t need to sign Van de Beek.
