MU fans expect Donny van de Beek to be the next Dutchman to shine at Old Trafford. When Ajax Amsterdam fans heard about Donny van de Beek’s move to Manchester United.
Not many people resent this midfielder. Of the four Ajax people named in the 2020 Golden Ball nomination list, only he and Dusan Tadic remained. But the Serbian striker is about to turn 32, while Van de Beek is 23 years old and has a future ahead.
Two young men in their twenties Matthijs de Ligt and Frenkie de Jong went to Juventus and Barcelona. And now it’s Van de Beek’s turn to claim his name in one of the toughest tournaments on the planet.
Van de Beek posted romantic photos with his girlfriend Estelle Bergkamp on her personal page on the occasion of celebrating a year in love. Estelle is the drinking daughter of Dutch football legend Dennis Bergkamp.
The young dating couple received support from the former Arsenal player, because he had known Van de Beek since he was a boy. Van de Beek began playing football with the Veensche Boys youth team, where his father Andre used to play.
Van de Beek did not develop in the direction of a backward striker like his old mentor. He can play every position on the midfield axis, from a “number 10” behind the striker to the defensive midfielder.
But Van de Beek’s most comfortable position is in the center of the pitch and acts as a shuttle midfielder. According to Frank de Boer, he needs to improve his dispute twice.
The Dutch Eredivisie tournament in the 2019/20 season only kicked 26 rounds before being canceled due to the Covid-19 translation. Statistics from WhoScored show that of the central midfielders at least 20 games last season, Donny van de Beek is the second most impressive.
In all competitions, he made 37 appearances and had 10 goals and 11 assists, impressive numbers for a central midfielder. Out of the eight goals scored in the Dutch league, only one was made out of the box by Van de Beek.
