Man Utd fans pick out "beautiful" Donny van de Beek moment from first start

Manchester United fans were impressed by new signing Donny van de Beek with one piece of skill from the Dutchman standing out.

Van de Beek played the full 90 minutes as United lost their only pre-season friendly of the summer to Aston Villa.

The Red Devils were beaten 1-0 with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side beginning their Premier League campaign next weekend.

Van de Beek shone having signed from Ajax earlier in the summer and wowed fans with a neat roulette and stepover in the first half.

And the skill amazed fans with one writing on social media: “It’s not the turn I like it’s that little move he does straight after. Beautiful.”

While another added: “He looks super comfortable on the ball! Some nice low crosses in the box and long passes. Hoping he starts next week!”

And a third Red Devils supporter put: “That's it lads, already got our money's worth.”

United boss Solskjaer was pleased with Van de Beek’s contribution with the Dutchman being his only signing of the summer to date.

Solskjaer said: "Donny was maybe the biggest plus outfield, he's such a finder of space and creates time for himself with his timing and movement.

“I was very happy with his performance."

While Van de Beek’s Red Devils team-mate Luke Shaw opened up on how the midfielder has been coping in training.

Shaw said: “He's done really well considering he's only trained with us for two days.

The most important thing for him is getting to know the players and knowing how each other plays, so we've got the whole week, next week, to slot him in.

“So far, so good. He's a very nice guy so I'm sure he'll slot in really well.”
