Donny van de Beek has struggled to hold down a regular role with Manchester United since joining from Ajax in 2020.

The Netherlands international has now revealed how he can help Manchester United with Erik ten Hag in charge.

Van de Beek said: “To be injured is the most difficult thing for a player. You want to be on the pitch, around the guys in the stadium, feel the grass and, yeah, it’s a hard time if you are injured. I’m happy to be back and have to stay fit for a longer time and just try to help the team.

“I feel great, I feel good and what I’m saying is I just need to keep going and, if chances come, I have to take them.

“It [playing an attacking role] is also one of the points how I can maybe help the team, play in between the lines and make my runs with the ball, give some passes. I just do my best and have to stay fit and just help the team.”
