Donny van de Beek is eager to succeed at Manchester United, but is willing to be patient and wait 'for his time'.
The Dutchman arrived at Old Trafford in the summer from Ajax but has been sparingly used by Ole Gunnar Solskajer in the opening weeks of the 2020/21 season.
Speaking after scoring for the Dutch national team against Spain in a friendly match, van de Beek echoed Solskjaer's recent sentiments that he will have time to showcase his talent.
“That I have to be patient, but also that I just have to continue with what I am doing," he responded when asked about the instructions he’s receiving from Ole.
“He's seen that I have a good impact when I come into the field. My time is definitely coming. And when those opportunities come, I have to be there.
“I'm a patient person, but of course you go there [to United] to play as much as possible. I also think – in the minutes that I have made, in the times that I have come in – I have shown that I can add something to the team.”
He further opened up on life at Old Trafford in the few weeks he has been there.
“It sounds like a cliche for me to say this because of course, I would have liked to play more, but I really enjoy being in a nice team. I am received very well and helped by everyone.”
The midfielder and his Dutch team-mates will be in action again on Sunday when they face Bosnia and Herzegovina in the Nations League
