Agent slams Man Utd over Van de Beek: ‘Should have lost 7-1’

Donny van de Beek’s agent has stuck the knife in to Manchester United for their treatment of the midfielder, claiming they “should have lost 7-1” to Brighton.

Van de Beek remains United’s only signing of the summer – something Gary Neville has taken umbrage with – after he made a £39million switch from Ajax.

But the midfielder has played just 24 minutes in their two Premier League games so far this season as United have struggled.

The Dutchman scored on his debut in defeat to palace and played a part in earning the penalty that led to their winner at Brighton.

But Van de Beek’s agent, Sjaak Swart, who spent 20 years as a player for Ajax, where he was part of their famous side that won three consecutive European Cups between 1971 and 1973, is displeased with his client’s lack of game time.

Swart told Dutch outlet VoetbalPrimeur: “A substitute; I don’t like it at all.

“I couldn’t do it, coming on with four minutes left. You’d have to leave me on the bench.

“But, I have to say, he still did three good things. And the penalty, where the winning goal came from, came from him. He did well in those couple of minutes.

“But normally they should have lost 7-1. Brighton hit the post and the bar five times. They (Brighton) have a nice team, but that shouldn’t happen to Manchester United.”
