New Man United midfielder, Donny van de Beek has sent a message to manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, telling him that he has done enough to deserve a regular playing time and starting roles in games.

The former Ajax player has not been favoured with starting roles at Old Trafford since he joined that that seems to be getting at him already. He said he has been able to prove that he can add something to the team if given the opportunity.

The Dutchman has not started any Premier League game with just 75 minutes since his move from Ajax at the start of the season. He has scored a goal in the league. However, he has two starts in the Premier League and twice in the Carabao Cup this campaign.

Expressing confidence that his time to play regularly under manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will come, Donny van de Beek talks patience amid his lack of minutes, disclosing that the Red Devils boss has told him to be patient.

After scoring in the Netherlands’ 1-1 friendly draw with Spain on Wednesday, Van de Beek said he has already shown his potential to have a positive impact on the side.

“It sounds cliche for me to say this, because of course I would have liked to play more, but I really enjoy being on a nice team. I am simply received very well and helped by everyone,” Van de Beek told NOS.

“I’m a patient person, but of course you go there to play as much as possible. I also think – in the minutes that I have made, in the times that I have come in – I have shown that I can add something to the team.”

Meanwhile, manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has favoured Bruno Fernandes, Paul Pogba, Fred, Nemanja Matic and Scott McTominay ahead of the former Ajax midfielder so far this season.
