Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has confirmed summer signing Donny van de Beek is unhappy with his situation at the club.
The Dutchman moved to Old Trafford from Ajax last summer in a deal worth £40million.
The 23-year-old has struggled for game time featuring in only half of the club’s Premier League matches and starting only twice.
The Norwegian is happy with the Dutch international’s attitude despite not playing as much games as he would have loved and has backed him to be a key player for the club.
“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.
“He reminds me a lot about myself, when I first came in, that he understands my difficulties and challenges.
“We are doing well and have got players who are playing really well in his position. I was the same with Sir Alex.
“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.
“He will definitely be involved in this game against Liverpool and he might be the deciding factor in the game.
“He trusts his own quality. He is a quietly confident guy who deep down knows he is good enough and is just waiting for his opportunity.”
