 Manchester United legend Rio Ferdinand thinks Donny van de Beek can flourish under Lampard at Everton.

Former Manchester United defender Rio Ferdinand believes Dutch midfielder Donny van de Beek can succeed at Everton. Ferdinand has given his thoughts on Van de Beek’s move to Everton on loan.

He said: ” I’ve talked to him quite a bit and I’ve also talked to him about the deal, during this time period. I think it’s important for Donny van de Beek to play, but Equally important is where he will play.”

 Van de Beek will play for Everton until the end of the season.

“If you’re going to ask him to play the same roles he played at Man United, maybe sometimes a bit more defensively, then you’re not getting the most out of him . must give him permission to go forward, to be allowed to attack in the box.”

Ferdinand also believes Frank Lampard’s style of play will benefit Van de Beek: ” He knows how to score, he knows how to play one and two-touch. And Frank Lampard, in his short stint as head coach, has trying to make our teams play football in a way that people like Donny van de Beek can thrive. I hope it works for both of them.”
