Netherlands boss Frank de Boer is confident Donny van de Beek will get his chance at Manchester United.

The 23-year-old moved to Old Trafford from Ajax in a £40 million deal this summer and is yet start a Premier League game.

Despite questions over the player’s lack of playing time and place in the United team, De Boer is optimistic over the midfielder’s future with the Red devils.

“Of course I try to give him as much confidence as possible, I also showed that by letting him play against Italy [in the previous international break]. He did a pretty nice job,” De Boer said at his press conference on Tuesday.

“He is also doing well at Manchester United but they have a fantastic midfield.

“That’s difficult too but Donny will still get to play enough.

“Of course he wants more but you also have to get used to a different competition.

“He will experience that too, let’s hope he will eventually get more minutes. In any case, he is equipped, so we can use him well.”
