Manchester United midfielder Donny van de Beek has opened up on his preferred position as he was deployed in a deep midfield role against Istanbul Basaksehir.

The Dutchman insists he’s comfortable playing either in an advanced position or in a deep midfield position.

When asked about his experience playing in a deep role after the 4-1 win over Istanbul Basaksehir in the Champions League, Donny van de Beek told MUTV: “It worked really well.

“Some games I play number ten and sometimes the coach needs me in the control position.

“That is fine for me because before, when I played at Ajax, I was playing in those positions, so it is okay.”

The midfielder played in a deep midfield role against the Turkish side and was superb.
