Ole Gunnar Solskjaer insists that Donny van de Beek will get his chances in the future.

Donny van de Beek

has only started eight games since he moved from Ajax in the summer and this has led many to suggest that he should leave

Manchester United


Dutch great Ronald de Boer believes the midfielder should find an exit as soon as possible in order to ensure a place in the Netherlands squad for European Championships.

However, Manchester United manager

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer

insists the midfielder will get more chances in the future and he will start the game against


in the

FA Cup

on Saturday.

“There are so many examples of players needing a little bit of time, quality players, we have many examples ourselves and there are other clubs with examples and sometimes it takes time,” Solskjaer said.

“You don’t expect people who care for him to be quiet at times, especially when they want the best for them. Donny is going to play tomorrow, it’s another chance for him. And, yes, I’ve spoken to him and made him aware of how much we rate him, but he will play tomorrow and it’s a good chance again for him to kick on.”

Brandon Williams

is another player who has struggled for game time this season as he has only started two games in the Carabao Cup this season. The full-back has been struggling since Alex Telles arrived.

Solskjaer also did not rule out a loan move for the 20-year-old but insists that he is well regarded at the club.

“This season has been more difficult for him, I think he’s put his head down and worked really hard lately. He will be involved tomorrow, he’s in the squad,” Solskjaer said of Williams.

“He has shown me that he has the desire to fight through this, that’s the biggest thing. When you find your first big contract, you do well, can you bounce back after not being in the team as much?

"Brandon has shown that lately so hopefully he will just keep carrying on as he does. He knows my view on it, he knows my view on him and we believe in the boy.”
