Eintracht Frankfurt manager, Dino Toppmoller, has publicly apologized to Manchester United’s Donny van de Beek for leaving him out of the club’s Europa Conference League squad for the knockout stages.
Van de Beek joined Frankfurt on loan from Man United during the January transfer window, with the Bundesliga outfit having the option to make the deal permanent in the summer for £9.3 million.
This loan spell is Van de Beek’s second since his £35 million move to Manchester United from Ajax in 2020.
He previously spent time at Everton during the 2021/22 campaign, making seven appearances and scoring one goal.
With 62 matches played for the Red Devils in all competitions, Van de Beek will be hoping to revive his career in Germany.
Despite the excitement surrounding his move, Van de Beek has only played three games for Frankfurt since leaving Old Trafford.
Toppmoller acknowledged the Dutch midfielder’s lack of game time in recent years, stating that it would take time for him to regain his form.
However, the manager expressed his confidence in Van de Beek’s abilities and believes he will make a significant impact in the second half of the season.
The manager was also impressed by Van de Beek’s reaction to the omission, as the midfielder responded with a goal and two assists in a recent friendly match.
