Marwijk has faith the midfielder would fit in well at United

Dutch national manager Bert Van Marwijk believes Wesley would benefit from a move to the champions.

The Sunday Mirror reports:

R;Bert van Marwijk, the Holland coach, has stepped into the £40million transfer wrangle to tell the Dutch midfielder he can ­become an even greater player at Manchester United – even if it means taking a pay cut!
Van Marwijk said: “A transfer to United will do Wesley a lot of good. He will benefit as a player from playing for them.

“With and he has already the biggest club names in football on his cv. But Manchester United will be another big step up the ­international ladder for him.

“Manchester United have a unique playing style and they perform ­consistently at the ­highest level.

“Their methods in training, and the way people work at this club with players, are superb.

“This is why it will be a new challenge to Wesley. It will inspire him and it will give him new ­energy.”

The Dutch boss, who guided his team to the World Cup final last year, also claims that the deal will benefit the Holland team.

He explained: “The United style is much more similar to the Dutch style than Inter’s way of playing.

“When Wesley plays for ­Holland we make sure he gets the ball as soon as possible to his feet. Much quicker than Inter try that.

“It means he can have a goal ­attempt much quicker or can give a decisive pass.

“In Italy he plays in a more ­sitting role, and he is facing six defenders all the time.

“The control we let him take in attack with the Dutch team, I can also see with United.

“I think he would really fit into the perfectly at Old ­Trafford.”


Whether will end up at the Theatre of Dreams is still open to -much- debate, but despite some fans expressing misgivings about whether he’s really needed, the Dutch coach certainly believes he’s a good fit.
