What Erik ten Hag has said about Van de Beek’s Man Utd struggles

What Erik ten Hag has said about Van de Beek's Man Utd struggles

Ajax manager Erik ten Hag has previously described Donny van de Beek’s lack of progress at Manchester United as a “mortal sin,” amid United’s interest in him becoming the club’s next manager.

Van de Beek, of course, played a key role in that run, scoring three goals and claiming two assists in what was a hugely successful 2018/19 campaign for the Netherlands international.

His performances for Ajax, of course, earned him a big-money move to Old Trafford in September 2020.

However, his time at United has not gone according to plan, with him being restricted to just 50 appearances in all competitions.

Both Ralf Rangnick and Solskjaer have overlooked Van de Beek, meaning his only hope of resurrecting his United career could be if Ten Hag lands the job this summer.

Ten Hag, speaking last month, told de Volkskrant : “Donny, I find that hard. [It’s a] mortal sin.

“If you haven’t had a chance yet, then development will also stall. Every now and then you encourage them.”
