Berbatov tells Man Utd that it is inappropriate for him to face Solskjaer to stop him


Former Manchester United striker Dimitar Berbatov says Donny van de Beek should knock on Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s door asking why he is constantly clogged.

The midfielder of Holland was United signing the title in the summer when he arrived from Ajax for £ 35.7 million. However, had a major struggle to make an impact at Old Trafford.

The 23-year-old made just two starts in the Premier League and was limited to a three-minute cameo in the Carabao Cup semi-final defeat to rivals Manchester City.

Van de Beek suffered from the remarkable form of Bruno Fernandes in his favorite role no. 10. But Berbatov wondered why it was not used elsewhere.

He said Betfair (as quoted by Metro): “I don’t know what’s going on with Donny Van de Beek. I said before signing that I like him as a player, he was great for Ajax and his national team, but now he can’t get a game at United.

“I don’t watch the training and the little time he takes on the field is not enough to judge him.

“He needs a series of games in a row to give him confidence. I see that his confidence is not high at the moment and this is normal because when you are not playing, you start to punish yourself and ask yourself questions.

I was already looking for a way out

“I would not be surprised if he starts looking for a way out and no one will blame him. Something’s not working.

“Right now, Bruno Fernandes, Paul Pogba, Scott McTominay and Fred are all in front of him. This is judged by the amount of time he receives.

“Are all these players better than him? I don’t think so, everyone is different and everyone can bring different qualities to a game. That’s why I wonder what’s going on.

“I still think he can help the team. The minutes he gets are not enough to build his confidence and integrate him into the team and to get used to the Premier League. Sometimes you can be ahead of other players simply based on your name and reputation, that’s how unfair it is in football sometimes.

“He should knock on the manager’s door and ask, what’s going on? he should ask himself why he is not playing and what he can do to improve his situation.

“Then, depending on the answers he receives, he can evaluate and do what is necessary. He is only 23 years old, so he has a lot of football in him and he will not want to waste any time.

“It’s an unpleasant situation for the player and we hope it will be resolved soon.”
