Netherlands international, Donny van de Beek, in action for Manchester United. Manchester United stars displeased with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer over the treatment of Donny van de Beek According to the Daily Mail (h/t The Express), Manchester United stars are ‘frustrated’ with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer over the treatment of Donny van de Beek.
The 24-year-old was signed by the Red Devils for £40million in the summer of 2020. However, he is yet to be given a chance to prove his worth to the club. Despite encouraging performances off the bench, the Dutchman was only afforded four league starts last campaign.
His game-time has only shortened this season, with the player yet to start a Premier League game for the club. Solskjaer has often preferred the double pivot of Scott McTominay and Fred and has chalked and changed with Paul Pogba.

Van de Beek was given the opportunity to come into the game 10 minutes from time, but the game was done and dusted by then.
In fact, several Manchester United stars are now unhappy with Solskjaer over his treatment of the Dutch international. This frustration comes after the displeasure of the players over the game-time that was being afforded to fringe stars Jesse Lingard and Nemanja Matic.
