Donny Van de Beek injured & will miss Euro 2020

It has been reported that Manchester United player Donny van de Beek will miss Euro 2020 after withdrawing from the Netherlands camp due to injury.

The Netherlands coach, Frank de Boer, will not call up a replacement for the 24-year-old. The extent of Van de Beek's injuries is yet to be revealed.

A statement from the Dutch Football Association said: "Donny van de Beek is not available to play the European Championship with the Netherlands. The Manchester United midfielder is struggling with an injury. As a result, the 19-time international, who last played for the Dutch squad in March, is not fit enough to join for the tournament."

Netherlands and PSV Eindhoven right-back Denzel Dumfries said: "This is a huge blow. As a group we are working towards the tournament and Donny is part of our group. We all really feel for him."

It's the latest setback for Van de Beek, who has had a rough year since joining Manchester United from Ajax last summer. Last season, he only started four times in the Premier League, scoring once.

Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has repeatedly dismissed reports that the player is dissatisfied with his lack of success at Old Trafford.

"I've answered this question so many times and there's so many examples of players needing a little bit of time, quality players," Solskjaer said.

"We have many examples ourselves and there are other clubs with examples and sometimes it takes time."
