Manchester United legend and former Blackburn and Stoke boss Mark Hughes has twisted the knife on Donny van de Beek.
It follows his tough debut campaign in the Premier League where the Dutchman has largely been sidelined.
Limited to cup games and Europa League outings, Van de Beek started against Leicester on Sunday.
And the midfielder shone before being taken off in the second-half with his clever dummy allowing Mason Greenwood to score in the first-half.
Ultimately, United lost to the Foxes to crash out of the FA Cup while Van de Beek did not look best pleased after failing to finish another 90 minutes.
Former Red Devils star Hughes was damning in his assessment, admitting the Netherlands international looks lost at Old Trafford.0:000:18

“Clearly it’s difficult, he hasn’t had enough game time and you can see that in his play,” Hughes told Stadium Astro.https://c02a15691a0c1e5c4a4b52f92c160de3.safeframe.googlesyndication.com/safeframe/1-0-37/html/container.html138212091369MOST READ1Leeds’ Patrick Bamford makes decision on international future after England snub2EA challenges FIFA 21 Ultimate Team ‘true cost’ viral post and clarifies FUT premise3Stunning Luis Suarez hat-trick leads to angry Ole Gunnar Solskjaer Liverpool title comment
“He’s wandering and not really getting on the ball, doesn’t know how to affect the game, can’t demand the ball of his team-mates because they’re not quite sure whether or not they have enough confidence in him.
“He looks like a guy who’s wandering around lost on the field.
“Okay, some of that responsibility he has to take on himself, he has be more demonstrative, he has to be a key player.ADVERTISEMENT
“He’s a big-money signing he’s come from a big club in Ajax so he’s used to being a top player of influence.
“But clearly, since he’s come to United he hasn’t shown anything like what the level he needs to be at to remain a United player.
“He can only have so many opportunities, at some point he’s going to have to take them or United will move him on.
“I think they’re edging towards that decision if he’s not careful.”https://get-latest.convrse.media/?url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.mirror.co.uk%2Fsport%2Ffootball%2Fnews%2Fvan-de-beek-manchester-united-23771464%3Futm_source%3Dmirror_newsletter%26utm_campaign%3Dmufc_newsletter2%26utm_medium%3Demail%26pure360.trackingid%3D&cre=bottom&cip=25&view=web
