Ole Gunnar Solskjaer Hits Back At Question Over Donny van de Beek's Game-Time At Manchester United
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer insists Donny van de Beek will get his game-time at Manchester United following yet another substitute appearance in the Premier League.
He came on as a substitute as United thrashed Newcastle 4-1 on Saturday and speaking after his side's victory, Solskjaer was asked about the Dutchman's absence from his starting XI.
"He'll get his game-time. He's been fantastic in the group," he said.
Van de Beek entered the fray in the 76th minute when the game was level.
United went onto score three goals to secure a much-needed win.
On the 23-year-old, Solskjaer added: "I think you see today and in training, he's so neat and tidy, I don't think he lost the ball once.
"It's about finding the balance in the team. We've won 4-1 today and you're asking why I didn't start one of the players.
