Donny van de Beek’s agent hits out at Man United over Dutchman’s role: ‘A substitute, I don’t like it at all’

Van de Beek’s agent unhappy with Man United

Donny van de Beek of course represents the sole arrival at Old Trafford this summer.

The Dutchman previously stood as a key figure in an Ajax side that won back-to-back league titles, and reached the semi-finals of the Champions League.

So, whilst central midfield didn’t really appear an area of concern for United, landing the Dutchman for an initial £35m did look a solid bit of business.

To this point, though, van de Beek’s chances to impress have been rather limited.

The midfielder did start vs Luton in the League Cup last week, but that United XI was considerably weakened.

And, after watching his client afforded just a few minutes of action over the weekend, van de Beek’s agent has since moved to criticize the Red Devils for the the Dutchman’s lack of time on the pitch:

“A substitute; I don’t like it at all.

“I couldn’t do it, coming on with four minutes left. You’d have to leave me on the bench.

“But, I have to say, he still did three good things. And the penalty, where the winning goal came from, came from him. He did well in those couple of minutes.

“But normally they should have lost 7-1. Brighton hit the post and the bar five times. They (Brighton) have a nice team, but that shouldn’t happen to Manchester United.”

Brighton vs Man United

Despite having only taken on Brighton this past Saturday, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and co. once again face a trip to the Amex on Wednesday evening.

This comes in the form of a 4th round League Cup clash.

After Solskjaer made a plethora of changes to his side for United’s League Cup 3rd round outing last week, it was widely predicted that van de Beek would be in from the off this evening.

And, upon United releasing their starting line-up to take on Brighton a short time ago, this did indeed prove to be the case:
