Guido Albers says there is no guarantee the current campaign will be better for Donny van de Beek
Donny van de Beek, 24, suffered a really painful season at Man Utd in 2020-21, admits the Dutch midfielder’s agent, who admits there is no guarantee the current campaign will be any better for him.
Donny van de Beek will succeed
Eyebrows were raised when the Red Devils swooped down on Ajax last summer for yet another creative talent, with Solskjaer already boasting a plethora of alternatives in its lineup. The 24-year-old found it difficult to hit Old Trafford, leading to regular rounds of away talk. Donny van de Beek’s spokesman, Guido Albers, said Van de Beek is pleased that the club trusts him so much, but last season was really painful because he didn’t play much. Donny was ready for this. It is a matter of choice and timing, you must accept. Donny van de Beek has signed a six-year contract but wants to play.
In the last few weeks Donny has shown that he is ready for the new season and he has shown that he loves to see the club. So they will see in the next few months if the club will use it or not. Albers hopes they’ll use it if they don’t have to find other solutions, but Albers doesn’t think it’s necessary. Albers says it will be clearer in the coming months that Donny van de Beek can be a really good Man Utd player and delight the fans who support him all the time. The 24-year-old player will succeed.
Donny van de Beek will not receive guarantees
Guido acknowledged that the push for the exits was made during the summer transfer window, with interest, but no deal was made. Donny, who made just four Premier League starts last season and has yet to see a single minute of action in the current campaign, has no guarantees when it comes to playing time in 2021-22. Guido said that coaches would never do that. So no, he won’t get guarantees and Guido Albers thinks that is fair. Coaches have to do their job and players have to do theirs.
