Former Liverpool midfielder, Don Hutchison, has slammed Manchester United for the manner they’ve treated Donny van de Beek since his arrival at the club.

The Dutchman is yet to start a Premier League match, and was an unused substitute in the 2-1 win over Paris Saint-Germain and the goalless draw against Chelsea on Saturday.

Hutchison believes the player was brought in to please the fans, even though he wasn’t really needed, and has criticised Solskjaer’s side for almost leaving him in no man’s land.

He said on ESPN FC, “I was looking at the pictures of Donny van de Beek sat in the stands looking gloomy thinking ‘what am I doing here?’

“He’s not playing any part at all since he’s been there. It looks like a real panic signing they don’t really need. It’s a shame for Van de Beek really.”

The last game van de Beek played for the Red Devils was the 4-0 win over Newcastle two weeks ago, and Gary Neville believes he could end up regretting the move if things don’t change.

The pundit opined after the goalless draw against Chelsea, “What is a mystery is Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s use of Donny van de Beek after he was signed for £40 million.

“The more you see him not starting the more he must be thinking ‘what am I doing here?’ I think Fred, Scott McTominay, and Bruno Fernandes is Ole’s favourite midfield three.”
