“He is not that good” – Van Basten slams Manchester United star

Marco van Basten has taken a shot at Donny van de Beek and claimed the Manchester United star is not good enough.

The Dutchman has not had a good year as he has not managed to break into the starting XI.

Van Basten claims Van de Beek should not have moved to Manchester United as he was not ready for it. The Dutch legend added Real Madrid also would have been a bad choice for the midfielder as things are far more difficult when compared to Ajax

Van Basten was quoted by Voetbal Zone saying:

“It just wasn’t smart choices. If you say you spoke to Real Madrid and then you go to Manchester United, you are betting way too high. Van de Beek is not that good. As number 10 at Ajax it is much easier than as number 10 in Spain or England. In the Netherlands you get a lot of help, you get opportunities, but that is not the case abroad.”

Donny van de Beek was looking to move away on loan this summer, with Everton said to be a possible destination. However, Manchester United decided to block his exit as they want him as a cover for Bruno Fernandes and Paul Pogba.
