“He plays the same position as me and is the one I most look to, he is 21 years old and a very good player. He is faster than me and can receive the ball with more depth. I am someone who likes to have the ball at my feet. ”

Van de Beek has been training with the first team in Qatar and the youngster has responded positively by saying,

“It’s a nice reward for a good first half of the season. I’m very happy with it. I try to make my debut for the first team as soon as possible.”
