Manchester United confirm Donny van de Beek out for rest of season

Donny van de Beek’s season is over after he was injured in Man United’s win over Bournemouth last week.

Erik ten Hag has confirmed Manchester United star Donny van de Beek is out for the rest of the season.

The 25-year-old’s leg gave out following a challenge from Bournemouth midfielder Marcos Senesi in United’s 3-0 win on 3 January.

Ten Hag said Van de Beek had not torn his ACL: “Yes, it’s the knee. Long term it looks pretty good, he will be back for the start of pre-season. The rest of the season he is out.

“I think everyone was really, thoughts are with him, it’s terrible when you’re in the middle of a season and you have a bad start, a serious injury, it’s always very disappointing and thoughts, your feelings are with the player, you express that.

“Our group did it really well and now we’re happy that his long-term knee is fine. Donny is happy about that too. But in the same moments, there are mixed feelings and disappointment that he’s out this season.

“The players are feeling that we are building sooooooooooomething good and we want to be a part of it and that’s what I feel at this club and right now, everyone wants to be a part of it. There are two sides to that.

“But the good news is that in the long run he will be back and his knee will be stable.”

United signed Van de Beek from Ajax for £40m in September 2020, but he has started just four games this season, having managed four appearances last year.
