Manchester United are preparing for their Premier League opener against Crystal Palace on Saturday, September 19.
Ahead of the game, the Red Devils newcomer Donny van de Beek has revealed that he “cannot wait” to play in front of United fans. Fans are not allowed in the stadiums due to coronavirus pandemic but Van de Beek is excited for their return.
Discussing his first few weeks at Old Trafford, Van de Beek told MUTV: “Everyone has helped me a lot and wanted to make me feel at home and this is really good for me and it has given me the confidence to play.
“It’s a family club, I feel this already from the first seconds I have been here. Old Trafford is an amazing stadium. The nicest thing will be when the fans are there too and I cannot wait to play for the first time in front of them.
“I hope to see them soon in the stadium because for our team they will give us a lot of power when we can have them with us.
“I watched United a lot [when I was younger]. Because a lot of Dutch players have played here and this was nice to watch if you’re a young kid and you see the Dutch players there.
“Daley, Edwin, Robin van Persie… you see them. They won a lot of titles and United always played nice football, which was always good to see.”
