Speaking ahead of United's cup clash against Watford, Solskjaer was asked about Van de Beek's lack of game-time at United.

"I've answered this question so many time," he said.

"There's so many examples of players needing a little bit of time, quality players. We have many examples ourselves and there are other clubs with examples. Sometimes it takes time.

"You don't expect people who care for him to be quiet at times, especially when they want the best for them."
