Manchester United manager speaks out on Donny van de Beek frustrations at Old Trafford

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has responded to Donny van de Beek’s unhappiness.

Manchester United’s start to the season has been mixed. The Red Devils have played well in parts, but frustrated in equal measure in other fixtures.

United boss was asked about that in his press conference today, with the gaffer explaining that he understands why Van de Beek is upset – but he has to remain positive.

“I manage a squad of international footballers,” the boss told club media. “Donny was ready to come on, as all the players should be.”

“I must have the record appearances as a sub. I’ve not been happy a few times. Alex [Telles] was coming off as a left-back and Fred did that job well.

“I understand his [Van de Beek’s] frustration. That’s got to be built into determination. That’s not just Donny but all the players. We need to have positive energy. Donny has never affected his team-mates negatively, I want that out there.”

Sportvectru has eariler reported a pictures show Donny van de Beek was left fuming on the Manchester United bench last night after manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer once again snubbed him.

With United looking for a winning goal late on after Alex Telles brought them level at the hour mark in the Champions Legaue clash, Solskjaer opted to bring on Jesse Lingard and Fred ahead of the attacking midfielder in van de Beek.

The Dutchman was caught on camera being calmed down by teammates Dean Henderson as he clearly vented his frustration after being snubbed once again.

The 24-year-old has struggled to nail down a starting spot in the team ever since his £35 million move from Ajax in 2020.

However, many fans have been impressed with his performances when given the chance by Solskjaer.

The manager’s move would, however, be justified as Lingard would go on to provide the assist for Cristiano Ronaldo to win the game with one of the last kick’s of the ball after Fred’s key cross.
