Man Utd vs Everton: We can’t have sulkers – Solskjaer warns Van De Beek


Manchester United manager, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, has said he understands Donny van de Beek’s frustration over lack of minutes, but warned his squad “can’t have any sulkers”.

Van de Beek signed for United from Ajax for £39m last summer.

However, the Dutchman has struggled to play regularly under Solskjaer.

The 24-year-old has started only two games this season and played just five minutes in the Premier League against Newcastle.

Van de Beek appeared frustrated during United’s Champions League win over Villarreal on Wednesday when Solskjaer snubbed him and introduced Jesse Lingard and Fred.

But Solskjaer has now told the player to accept his decisions.

“I manage a squad full of international footballers, competitive footballers who want to make a difference, want to play. They all want to be on the pitch, of course, they do.

“Donny was ready to come on [against Villarreal], as all the players should be. I’ve probably been a substitute more than anyone in this club and you have to be ready all the time.

“Every player is keen to play. That’s got to be built into energy and some determination for when you get on and then show me. That is not just Donny, that is all the players,” Solskjaer told reporters on Friday.
