Van de Beek: Ten Hag will be really good for Reds
Manchester United will be looking to make it four wins on the trot when Arsenal visit Old Trafford today.
The pair worked together during their time at Ajax and van de Beek has seen first-hand the impact the manager can have.
"He will be really good for the club," van de Beek said in an interview for United Review.
"We had big success at the club in Ajax. Now we are here, with a new chapter and a new challenge, and of course we want to do the same here."
Van de Beek, who had a spell on loan at Everton last season, believes our current form is a clear indication of what the boss is trying to achieve here.
"I still think we can do much better and we can improve, but we signed a few new players - top-class players - so of course they will help the team improve.
"I believe that we will do better and better every week, and we're pushing for that."
"I know what they are capable of and they are really good players, so they will help us for sure," said Donny.
"They are nice people, but they are also team players. I think this is important, to work hard together. As people, they fit very well with the players we have."
Van de Beek believes we will need that depth during a 'tough season'.
"A club like United needs many options and needs a big squad to play and to have a good season.
"Everyone wants to play, but you have to show it and you need to improve yourself every day to be in the first XI.
"Having lots of options will keep everyone sharp, and for this we need lots of good players."
"I love it when we play after three days [another] game. I prefer more to have games than training sessions, so definitely I like it."
The full interview with Donny will be published in Thursday's edition of United Review for the Real Sociedad game. Tickets for that match are available now to Official Members.
