Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has sent a message to Manchester United midfielder Donny van de Beek ahead of Saturday’s Premier League game against Watford.

Van de Beek hasn’t started a Premier League game for Manchester United this season and has played just 15 minutes of Premier League football this season across two substitute appearances.

Ahead of the game against Watford, Solskjaer sent a message to Van de Beek, saying: “I think our fans can see a top professional and a very good player.

“And Donny is one that has never ever let himself or his team or his family down by his attitude.

“His approach to the game and training is spot on and I can’t fault him and he knows that. I keep in contact and I speak to him and communicate with him because it’s not easy when players are not playing as much as they think they should do and Donny thinks he should be playing more and he will be involved.

“I can’t say anything other than he’s another example of what to do when you’re not in the team and he’ll reap his rewards.”
