‘I don’t know why’ – Ten Hag can’t explain why Manchester United star is struggling

Manchester United star Erik ten Hag has admitted he can’t explain why Donny van de Beek has struggled at Manchester United.

Ten Hag said: “I know that Donny van de Beek can do better because I know [him] very well, but he delivered what I expected in terms of positioning and pressing, in terms of transition.

“But I think he can do more and that’s his biggest quality, he can be more of a threat to the opponent’s goal. I don’t know why he has struggled. I can only talk about my time here. He’s performing well in the game-time we gave him.

“He can sit deep and play high. I know that from the past, but his best position is his capabilities in the box of the opponents. Playing short behind the striker is his best role. He has a really good smell for being in the right position.”
