Michael Carrick makes Donny van de Beek admission as 10 Manchester United players told to leave
Carrick accepts Van de Beek’s apology.
Michael Carrick has stated that Donny van de Beek was not given enough first-team appearances at Manchester United prior to his loan move.
After joining United from Ajax in 2020, the Dutchman was repeatedly upset by his lack of opportunities at Old Trafford. Van de Beek was rarely granted playing time by former boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer despite impressing in Erik ten Hag’s side in Amsterdam.
Even after Ralf Rangnick took over as interim manager in November, the Netherlands international was still benched, despite United’s midfield woes. Van van Beek later moved on loan to Everton in the January transfer window in search of consistent playing time.
United has warned ten of its players that they must go.
Roy Keane has been branded ‘too kind’ following his angry diatribe on Sunday in which he stated ‘five or six’ players should leave Manchester United.
The Premier League champions defeated Ralf Rangnick’s team 4-1 at the Etihad Stadium on Saturday, with Kevin De Bruyne and Riyad Mahrez scoring braces. The visitors’ pleasure was short-lived after Jadon Sancho equalized in the first half.
Following the defeat, Chris Sutton lambasted the United squad in his Daily Mail editorial. “I might be the first person to ever voice these words, but here goes: Roy Keane was kind,” he stated of Roy Keane’s critical appraisal of United.
