After arriving from Ajax in the off-season, Marco van Basten addressed Donny van de Beek’s lack of playing time at Manchester United.
Donny van de Beek could not have joined Manchester United as the Dutch great Marco van Basten insisted that he was struggling for game time at Old Trafford.
“Donny should not have gone to Manchester United,” Van Basten said on Ziggo Sport’ ‘Rondo’. “When you are a good player you want to play every week.
“It is really bad for a player like Donny to play only six or seven games this year. That is shocking for your match rhythm.”
The legendary former Ajax, Milan and Dutch striker Van Basten further addressed the condition of Van de Beek at the Theatre of Dreams:
“I know he is earning loads and loads more than he used to.
“But as a top player, you have to be critical and look at the chances of playing when you sign for a new club.
“Donny should have waited for better prospects and signed for another club.”
