Donny van de Beek frustrations at Manchester United are clearly continuing to grow, with the Dutch midfielder spotted throwing down his bib during his outburst against Villarreal on Wednesday night.Footage initially emerged of the 23-year-old throwing his chewing gum as remained on the bench late in the game when the Red Devils were chasing a goal, subsequently being consoled by team-mates Eric Bailly and Dean Henderson.Van de Beek has only featured in three of the Red Devils’ nine matches this season, one of which was a five-minute cameo.Having signed from Ajax for a reported £35million last summer, manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer handed him just four Premier League started in his maiden campaign.The Dutchman was then reportedly denied a late loan move to Everton on transfer deadline day and his frustration boiled over when fellow midfielders Jesse Lingard and Fred were brought on instead of him during the midweek Champions League clash.van de Beek vented at not being selected by Solskjaer, with pictures posted on social media by The United Zone Podcast showing him throwing his bib and hitting the dugout.
Despite the outburst coming when Fred and Lingard entered the fray, the United boss was vindicated in his decision as the Brazilian came on at left-back and set up Cristiano Ronaldo’s winning goal with a late cross, which saw the Portuguese win a header before getting a return to score from Lingard.Solskjaer has previously stated that there will be games for Van de Beek in 2021-22 but it seems where to play him in the team is an issue.”He can play as a one or as a two in midfield,” said the Norwegian in August.”Of course we’ve looked at ways of getting one of the two to go forward.” Does van de Beek deserve more of an opportunity at Man Utd?

“I spoke with the manager and the club, and they said they wanted me to stay here,” van de Beek stated.”He also said: ‘What I see from you every day at training, is a different Donny now’.He was really positive about me, and now I am feeling well, I am in good shape, and I hope that I can show the fans that I have improved a lot.”He said he sees a big difference, maybe I am a bit stronger now and he can see that I have one year of experience in England now.” van de Beek also discussed his lack of regular minutes by saying: “You can never promise that that’s just football.
You can never promise a player and tell him if he can play or not, and I agree with that.”I have asked to play more.
You can train hard every day, but in the end, you need game time,” he added.”If you only play once a month, you cannot show your best form – playing is really important.” It followed comments from his agent saying the playmaker was happy after Solskjaer had given him such assurances but his small amount of game time this term suggests there is still frustration.Some supporters want him to operate as part of a midfield pair behind the attacking quartet, a role he took up against West Ham in his only 90 minutes of the season so far.van de Beek had a decent outing but United were defeated 1-0, crashing out of the Carabao Cup at the first hurdle..
