Donnie van de Beek’s agent has blasted Man Utd over the midfielder’s lack of game time.

Donnie van de Beek’s agent has criticized Manchester United for his client’s lack of game time since his £40m summer move from Ajax. The team deservedly lost 7-1 to Brighton in their most recent Premier League outing.

After scoring off the bench on his debut against Crystal Palace, Van de Beek was an even later substitute against the Seagulls, appearing in the final minute of stoppage time as well as normal time.

But agent Sujek Swart is unimpressed that van de Beek hasn’t started a league game.

“A substitution, I don’t like it at all. I couldn’t do it myself, standing up with four minutes to play,” the agent told Dutch broadcaster Voetbal Primeur.

Commenting on the impact Van de Beek had when he came on, Sajak explained, “I have to say he did three more good things. The penalty, where the winning goal came from, came from him.

“as usually, [United] Should have lost 7-1. [Brighton] A good team, but it shouldn’t be with Manchester United.

Despite not yet starting a Premier League game, with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer preferring Paul Pogba and Bruno Fernandes as the team’s more attacking midfielders, Van de Beek started against Luton in the Carabao Cup and Will likely retain this spot this week.

United face Brighton again in the fourth round of the competition on Wednesday night and Solskjaer has hinted that it will be a similar side to the one that eventually beat Luton 3-0.

“Each game takes on a life of its own and of course at the stage we’re at this season with all the games coming up, I think teams are making changes,” the United boss told MUTV. .

“You can see teams have a cup team and a league team and we will make changes. It will be very similar to what happened against Luton last week.
