Former Manchester United manager, Louis van Gaal feels Donny van de Beek made a mistake in joining the club from Ajax.
The Dutch international forged an excellent reputation at Ajax as an energetic central midfielder, and attracted the attention of big European sides in Real Madrid and Bayern Munich but he signed for the Red Devils in September.
“I hope his time will come, but I don’t think he made a good choice,” the former United boss told Dutch television channel Ziggo. “I said that right away. If you have Paul Pogba and Bruno Fernandes, what position should Van de Beek be in?
“He doesn’t have the qualities of Pogba and Fernandes. And now you see that Pogba often doesn’t start. Where should Van de Beek play then?
“I think you could have seen that beforehand. There are so many teams, which could have done better justice to him, also in the top division. He is a boy with many qualities.”
