One Manchester United fan noticed something in the pre-match warm-up that suggests Donny van de Beek won’t be a part of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s plans for as long as he is at the club
Manchester United fans believe the club’s treatment of Donny van de Beek is “disgusting” as he assisted the starting XI in a pre-match shooting drill against Tottenham.
The midfielder was an unused substitute in the 3-0 win over Spurs as his miserable time at Old Trafford continues.
The Norwegian boss opted to make a few tactical tweaks to shore up his defence as United changed to a 5-3-2 formation with Mason Greenwood and Marcus Rashford left on the bench.
Solskjaer opted for a midfield trio of Scott McTominay, Fred and Bruno Fernandes with Paul Pogba suspended after his red card against the Reds.

But Van de Beek is still not getting a look in despite his teammates misfiring in recent weeks.
Nemanja Matic and Jesse Lingard were the two midfielders who climbed off the bench, suggesting once again that the Dutchman is way down the pecking order.
And the majority of supporters sympathise with the former Ajax man as he’s not had a chance to prove himself following his move from the Netherlands.
One Man United fan even noticed something in the pre-match warm-up that suggests he won’t be a part of Solskjaer’s plans for as long as he is at the club.
Van de Beek was warming up with the other substitutes before he was called over to assist with the starting XI’s shooting drill ahead of kick off.
The footage showed the 24-year-old playing a one-two with players, setting them up for a shot at goal.
And the supporter taking the video was “disgusted” that the playmaker was being utilised like a coach and reckons it sums up how he has been treated at the club since his arrival.
“We all know it’s disgusting and he deserves much better.”
