Donny van de Beek ‘a man quietly on a mission’ to rejuvenate Man United career: report

Donny van de Beek is doing everything he can to turn his Man United fortunes around.

As we all now know, the 2020/21 campaign was a serious struggle for Donny van de Beek. After the initial excitement settled in once the signing was made, the Dutchman found it tough to acquit himself within the starting line-up.

Confidence dwindled pretty quickly, performance levels dipped and more often than not, Van de Beek cut a forlorn figure amongst the substitutes bench. However, he’s determined to bounce back from that.

The story comes from The Telegraph, which details a potential comeback story in the making. Van de Beek is described as a man ‘quietly on a mission’ to get his Reds career back on track in the 2021/22 campaign.

Van de Beek has had a couple of excellent pre-season outings in United colours, while the term ‘sharper and stronger’ is used by The Telegraph’s James Ducker, in regards to the midfielder.

Our number 34 has bulked up in the off-season, putting in the extra hours, working 4-5 days a week in the off-season to help him get stronger. Apparently, those results haven’t gone unnoticed.

First and foremost, confidence is vital in football. Van de Beek is entering into this season feeling good and with a point to prove. Now, it’s down to the midfielder to take that chance with both hands.

There’s a cracking player in there in Van de Beek and I still believe the long-term plan is to get him into the starting line-up as a Paul Pogba replacement. I’d like to see more trust placed in the Dutchman over the next nine months – because he definitely deserves that opportunity.
