Manchester United ace Donny van de Beek has been branded “too nice” by former Red Devils striker Dimitar Berbatov. He went on to state that the Dutchman could leave if his playing situation does not change.
United star Van de Beek has been told he is “too nice” and that he should seek talks with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer over his game-time.
The Red Devils coach made the midfielder his first signing of the summer when he joined from Ajax for a fee of around £40m.
At the time, some questioned the transfer, considering the already strong options in the middle of the park, including Bruno Fernandes, Fred and Paul Pogba.
And Van de Beek has struggled to make an impact at Old Trafford, as a result, starting just twice in the Premier League.
It has led to talk that the Netherlands international could depart the club despite arriving just months ago.
Former United striker Berbatov has told Van de Beek he should speak to Solskjaer over his game-time in the Premier League.
He told Stadium Astro: “I am confused why they spent so much on him when he does not play.
“If I was him I would go and knock on the boss’ door and ask the question, ‘Boss what is going on? What do I need to do to get more game-time?’
“It is a confusing situation and I bet he is angry because no player is happy not playing.
“I see just from his face that he is a nice boy, maybe he needs to be a bit more aggressive and angry sometimes and show his displeasure at not playing.
“Simply, when he does get the chance to play he does not have the full confidence with the ball.
“He is trying to go with one or two more touches all of the time just to make sure he makes the right decision.
“Hopefully, that situation will be resolved quickly.
“Otherwise, he is going to go someplace else to play. If you don’t play, you just find somewhere else to go.”
