New Manchester United signing tells Red Devils fans i will succeed because ‘i can play anywhere’
Donny van de Beek says he is confident of fitting into Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s line up at Manchester United.
Van De Beek was signed by Manchester United for a fee of £40 million from Ajax just a few weeks ago, but there are many out there that believe he will struggle to get a regular start in the side because the likes of Paul Pogba and Bruno Fernandes play in the same kind of position.
But after making an impressive cameo against Crystal Palace on Saturday evening, despite Palace winning 3-1, Van De Beek has opened up and told fans that he has the ability to play anywhere and will fit into Solskjaers system at Old Trafford.
“I play everywhere on the midfield, last season also I changed a lot – sometimes No.6, No.8, No.10,” he told Astro SuperSport.
“It doesn’t matter so much. But I think one of my strengths is to come in the box and score goals, make assists. If you have this freedom then you can play everywhere I think.
“The balance also always has to be good in the team, so you cannot have every midfielder go [forward] – you have to play smart.”
van De Beek showed some good touches, his movement was very good and of course he got that United goal, so United fans will be happy to see that he made an impact on his debut.
But they will be hoping that a few more signings like the Dutchman will make a move to Old Trafford this summer.
