Manchester United hero, Rio Ferdinand, has revealed Donny van de Beek’s biggest problem at Old Trafford.

According to Ferdinand, Van de Beek’s biggest problem at Man United is that he is ‘too nice’.

Van de Beek has found game time hard to come by since joining Man United from Ajax last year.

The Netherlands international has played just five minutes off the bench so far this season for Man United.

The 24-year-old has fallen out of favour under Man United manager, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

Speaking about Van de Beek’s situation on his FIVE YouTube show, Ferdinand said: “I think the big thing with Donny van de Beek – and he’s a great guy, we have had him on the show before – he’s a really calm, relaxed guy.

“I think this is a funny situation because if he was a bad guy and he was volatile and he was loud, he’d be gone. He wouldn’t be at Man United.

“And sometimes when you are too nice maybe, or you are nice about a situation and you are polite, you might not get the situation that you really require for yourself. And I think that is probably the problem for someone like Donny van de Beek.”
