Former striker Dimitar Berbatov believes that Donny van de Beek has “never had the chance” to prove his worth in Manchester United colours.

Van de Beek was handed his first start of the season for United’s shock 2-1 Champions League defeat to Young Boys on Tuesday, but was substituted at half-time, replaced by Raphael Varane, following Aaron Wan-Bissaka’s red card.

Van de Beek looked calm and composed on what was just his 16th start in United colours, but Solskjaer was unable to provide him a fair crack of the whip due to a required tactical shake-up, with the Reds switching to a back-three for the second 45 minutes.

Although he secured a rare start, Berbatov still doesn’t believe it was enough for the Dutchman to showcase his talents and qualities to those watching.

“United midfielder Donny van de Beek is running out of time to save his United career,” Berbatov told Betfair. “He started against Young Boys but was substituted at half-time.

“This has been the story of his time at the club. If he plays, he’s brought off. If he comes on, he gets ten minutes. He never gets the chance to settle and show what he can do.

“It’s just not working out for Van de Beek. It’s a pity because United paid big money for him. But this is what happens when you spend money just to satisfy your fans.

“I still hope he gets a proper chance but it is going to be very difficult for him and the club may decide to cut their losses if they can.”

Since making the switch to Old Trafford in September last year, the central-midfielder has racked up 38 appearances for the Reds, scoring just one goal.
