This is the reason why Donny van de Beek's performance has decreased at Rio Ferdinand's version of Manchester United - Manchester United legend Rio Ferdinand has a theory regarding the poor performance of Donny van de Beek. He considered the midfielder still had not found the right rhythm of the game so he did not perform optimally.

Since joining MU, Van de Beek has had a hard time breaking into the MU first team. Because the midfielder has difficulty adapting to the rhythm of football in England.

Recently, Erik Ten Hag provided two opportunities for Van de Beek to start. However, the midfielder's performance in those two games was disappointing enough that he had to be withdrawn early in both matches.

Ferdinand himself believes that it is natural that Van de Beek is not optimal at MU. "I watched him about four or five times when he was at Ajax, and his performances were much different from what he is showing at the moment," Ferdinand told Vibe with FIVE.

Incorrect Position

According to Ferdinand, one of the reasons why Van de Beek was not optimal in the United squad was because he was not played in his best position with the Red Devils.

"At that time, he was one of the three or four best Ajax players. If you put him in the penalty box, he is capable of scoring goals," continued Ferdinand.

"The problem is at United, he was never used near the box. He didn't get the chance to be in the right position and show his best qualities."

Rhythm Not Right

Ferdinand also assesses the problem of injury has also more or less affected Van de Beek's performance so far.

He considered the midfielder was injured too often so he had difficulty establishing the right rhythm of the game.

"As far as I can see, he [van de Beek] hasn't found a good rhythm and momentum during his time at Man United. That's why he hasn't had any impact on this team."

Last Two Games

Van de Beek could potentially play twice before the 2022 World Cup gets underway.

Manchester United will face Aston Villa in the Europa League in the middle of the week before closing with a match against Fulham.
