The former agent of Donny van de Beek revealed new details regarding the difficult situation of the Dutchman at Manchester United, and how the former team player Paul Pogba affected her.
Since his move to Manchester two years ago, the former Ajax midfielder has struggled with a lack of opportunities to start, even with the arrival of Eric Ten Hag, his former coach in the Netherlands, to coach United.
What did the agent say about Pogba’s relationship with Van de Beek’s situation?
Guido Albers, who succeeded Ali Dorsson as agent for the Dutch player, told Voetbal Primeur: “I saw the disappointment he felt with the treatment in Manchester, and he saw what I had done to change his situation.”
He continued: “In United, he is highly regarded and was loved by the public. In Manchester, he does not play at all. The relationship between him and the club is bad.”

He concluded, “He unleashed all that disappointment on me, I underestimated the effect on his psyche, I should have intervened and helped him earlier
