EPL: Donny van de Beek told Man United players don’t trust him
Former Manchester City manager, Mark Hughes, has told Manchester United midfielder, Donny van de Beek, that the Red Devils players do not trust him enough with the ball yet.
Hughes said this following Man United’s FA Cup fifth-round 1-0 win over West Ham United at Old Trafford on Tuesday night.
“You just sense… it looks like they don’t trust him [Van de Beek] with the ball yet,” Hughes told talkSPORT.
“When the likes of Fred and (Nemanja) Matic look up, and they see Rashford, they see (Anthony) Martial, they see (Mason) Greenwood, who is still a young player but has great talent, it’s like they defer to them, their first thought is to pass to them.
“Van de Beek, I haven’t seen a great deal of movement, I haven’t seen little movements to get in pockets of space, even though you suspect that’s the player he is, and those are the areas he wants to work in.
“He’s been disappointing again. He’s playing for Manchester United, a huge club, he’s got to show more than he’s showing at the moment.”
