Donny van de Beek believes he has shown he can add something to the Manchester United team despite a slow start to life at Old Trafford.

Van de Beek was Solskajer’s marquee signing of the summer when he made a £40million move from Ajax.

The Netherlands international has hardly featured, however, with all five of his Premier League appearances coming from the bench.

He made an instant impact in his debut against Crystal Palace when he netted soon after coming on, but has accumulated just 77 minutes of game time.

The 23-year-old starred for his country in their 1-1 draw with Spain on Wednesday scoring the equaliser.

He spoke to the press after the game and revealed the advice Ole Gunnar Solskajer had given him.

“It sounds cliché for me to say this, because of course I would have liked to play more, but I really enjoy being in a nice team. I am simply received very well and helped by everyone,” Van de Beek told NOS.

“I’m a patient person, but of course you go there to play as much as possible. I also think – in the minutes that I have made, in the times that I have come in – I have shown that I can add something to the team.

“What does he [Solskjaer] say to me? That I have to be patient, but also that I just have to continue with what I am doing.

“And that he’s seen that I have a good impact when I come into the field. My time is definitely coming. And when those opportunities come, I have to be there.”
