We don’t need Van de Beek, Patrice Evra says

Former Manchester United star, Patrice Evra, has made a very interesting claim about the club and it’s summer signing, Donny van de Beek.

The Dutchman has been limited to mostly cameo appearances for the Red Devils since he made the £40 million move from Ajax, and some appear converted for his future.

Gary Neville, has recently claimed the midfielder could end up regretting making the move if things don’t improve for him soon, and Evra already seemed convinced the former Ajax ace is surplus to requirements at Old Trafford.

Evra had boldly opined after the goalless draw against Chelsea, while speaking on Sky Sports, “Why did we buy Donny van de Beek?

“I have nothing against him. He’s watching the game from the stands. We don’t need him. Nobody will say it but that’s the truth.”

But Solskjaer has insisted Donny is important to his side, and the games will still come for him. He told the media in reaction to why his new signing had to watch the match from the stands, “Don’t worry about that.

“He will get his games — it is easy [for the media] to say who should be playing, but more difficult to say who shouldn’t.”

Donny has made a few starts this season, but they came in the League Cup, and while he will be patient, we can also understand his frustration, seeing as he was a starter back at Ajax.
