Donny van de Beek Manchester United 2020-21

Manchester United head coachOle Gunnar Solskjaer has admitted that summer signingDonnyvan de Beek is unhappy at Old Trafford due to his lack of playing time.

Van de Beek has made 21 total appearances this season but has played just 10 times in the Premier League – only two of which have been starts.

United have surged to the top of the league table with the likes of Fred, Scott McTominay, Paul Pogba and Bruno Fernandes playinga major role in central midfield.

That has left the Netherlands international as the odd man out, and his manager has admitted that lack of playing time hasn't gone down well.

“I wouldn’t say that Donny is happy," Solskjaer said."Of course, he wants to play more, but he gets about his job in the right manner.

"We are doing well and have got players who are playing really well in his position."

Solskjaer himself earned a reputation as a super sub during his playing days at Old Trafford, and as such he has plenty of empathy for his new signing.

“He reminds me a lot about myself, when I first came in, that he understands my difficulties and challenges," the Norwegian continued.

"I was the same with Sir Alex Ferguson, former Man Utd head coach. When he left me out I understood and I was happy for the team to win - and Donny is that type of guy.

“He knows he is important for us and knows he is going to play many games."

Ahead of Sunday's FA Cup match against Liverpool,Solskjaer revealed that Van de Beek would see the pitch at Old Trafford and backed him to make a major impact against Jurgen Klopp's struggling Reds side.

“He will definitely be involved in this game againstLiverpooland he might be the deciding factor in the game," Solskjaer said.
