Former Manchester United goalkeeper Edwin van der Sar has insisted that the club remain confident that Donny van de Beek will be a success at Old Trafford.
Van de Beek has not been used at all in any of United’s last five matches, but Van der Sar insists that his compatriot should not be too concerned just yet.
“I do talk to a lot of people at the club,” he told Dutch broadcaster Ziggo Sport. “He has a fantastic attitude and does well in training.
“It is difficult for him. [Paul] Pogba is coming back, [Bruno] Fernandes is very important, [Nemanja] Matic and [Scott] McTominay are also there.
“It’s no shame at all – it’s a big club, isn’t it? Of course, it’s a large amount of money, but they are confident that he will get there.”
Van de Beek will be hoping for a rare start when United take on Fulham at Craven Cottage on Wednesday evening.
