That latest snub of Van de Beek, who has struggled for game time since his arrival from Ajax, was a source of bemusement among United supporters, but post-match Solskjaer was keen to stress that the midfielder remains in his plans for the new season.
“I thought Nemanja [Matic] was excellent, Anthony [Martial] was close to scoring a goal but Jadon [Sancho] and Donny will be important for us,” Solskjaer added and now the 24-year-old’s agent, Guido Albers, has reacted to the United boss’ comments.
Albers outlined that Van de Beek is happy with the ‘clarity’ that Solskjaer provided, he told Dutch newspaper De Telegraaf,
“Everyone within the club knows that Donny cannot have another season like last year,” Albers said.
“In preparation, clarity would be provided about his role. The fans had already embraced him before, but the most important thing is that the trainer has now provided clarity in the English press.
“We are happy with that. And I assume that Donny will play a lot in one of the positions in midfield in the coming period.”
