Speaking with Inside United magazine, Van de Beek said:

“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 (Blind), 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.”
