Dutch legend van Basten criticizes van de Beek amid Man United struggles

'Not so good': Dutch legend van Basten criticizes Donny van de Beek amid Manchester United struggles

Holland and AC Milan icon Marco van Basten took aim at Manchester United star fighter Donny van de Beek on Monday.

VDB problems

The name of Dutch midfielder van de Beek, of course, took center stage at Old Trafford during the 2020/21 season.

However, unfortunately for the 24-year-old, this was generally due to the wrong reasons.

Chatter, among fans and experts alike, focused heavily on van de Beek’s struggles for playing time.

The talented midfielder made a huge move to United over the summer, and was expected to quickly establish himself as a regular in Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s ranks in the middle of the park.

However, this turned out to be far from the case.

Instead, van de Beek largely limited himself to substituting cameos. In fact, throughout his debut campaign in the Premier League, the former Ajax player was introduced from the bench 15 times, to accompany a paltry four starts.

‘Betting too high’

Those issues have since spread to the new season as well, as VDB has not appeared in any of United’s three Premier League outings to date.

As such, it’s safe to say that based on current results, the talented midfielder’s season in Manchester has proven to be a resounding failure.

And, as described above, one person who predicted such fights long before Van de Beek’s move to the Premier League became official is his compatriot Marco van Basten.

Dutch legend van Basten has never been shy when it comes to making his feelings regarding van de Beek clear, having hinted a few months ago that the initial career success of the 24-year-old was only due to the lower level of the Eredivisie, in comparison. to the main leagues in Europe.

And now, during an interview with Soccer zone, the former AC Milan hit man has continued his verbal aggression.

Van Basten has insisted that, in fact, van de Beek’s struggles in England are because he is simply not a “ that good ” footballer, and that his decision to move to Old Trafford was ill-advised at best. cases:

‘They just weren’t smart decisions. If you say you talked to Real Madrid and then you go to Manchester United, you are betting too high. ‘

Van de Beek is not that good. As number 10 in Ajax it is much easier than as number 10 in Spain or England. In the Netherlands you get a lot of help, you get opportunities, but that’s not the case abroad ”.
