'It’s done him the world of good' - Solskjaer offers Van de Beek hope at Man Utd after international break

Ole Gunnar Solksjaer has suggested Donny van de Beek might be in line for more minutes over the rest of the season, saying the March international break did the Dutchman "the world of good".

The midfielder has frequently found himself on the outside looking in since his arrival at Old Trafford last year, with the former Ajax man struggling to break through into the Norwegian's starting XI.

The 23-year-old has spent much of 2021 sidelined with a muscle problem, but impressed in a late cameo for his nation during last month's Qatar 2022 World Cup qualifier against Gibraltar with a goal, which his manager believes has reignited his drive ahead of the final stretch of the 2020-21 season.
