Van de Beek established in place of Fernandes for the premiere of Carrick


For his first on the bench for Manchester United, Michael Carrick made a strong choice to face Villarreal. The English coach chose to start Donny Van de Beek instead of Bruno Fernandes in a 4-2-3-1 on paper. The Portuguese will start as a substitute.

This Tuesday at 6:45 p.m., Manchester United has the opportunity to qualify for the knockout stages of the Champions League by winning against Villarreal. In a bad patch in the league, the English club chose to dismiss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. To replace him temporarily, Michael Carrick will take his place on the sidelines.

For this meeting, the Englishman decided to strike hard for his big first. In a 4-2-3-1 presented on paper, it is Donny Van de Beek (24) who will start as number 10, while the usual holder at this position Bruno Fernandes will start the game as a substitute. Often ignored by Solskjaer since his arrival in England, the Dutch midfielder has the opportunity to showcase himself in a match where the stakes are high.

Since the start of the season, the former Ajax Amsterdam has only played three games in the Premier League.

Carrick: « I have clearly in mind what I want to do »

Brought to the interim as manager of the team, Michael Carrick spoke about the upcoming match against his former executioner in the previous Europa League final: « It’s an important match for us , to try to qualify. I only think about getting ready for tomorrow, to give the best of ourselves « .

The former midfielder also confided what he planned to put in place in terms of the game: « I have worked with Ole for a long time and we have common beliefs. I have my personality, but it will be a similar game because that’s what we’ve been working on for so long. I have a clear idea of ​​what I want to do and how to do it and I can’t wait to see it on the pitch. «
