Memphis Depay joined Manchester United from PSV Eindhoven this summer, for £19.25 million, and was hotly tipped as one of the best young players in the world.
But the Dutch winger has not had the impact that some expected him to, considering all of the hype. Both he and manager Louis van Gaal have said that it will take time for him to settle into the culture of the Premier League, which is very true.
Off the field however, he has been causing a bit of a stir in the media and assistant manager Ryan Giggs has had to have words with him about his conduct.
Now Depay’s fellow countryman and United manager, Louis van Gaal, has said that if you do not comply with his team’s policy, you will be sold.
Van Gaal told reporters:
“Ryan has already given advice to him but the player is responsible for his own deeds.”
“You have to give respect to your team philosophy.”
“We have seen that some players cannot adapt to the team philosophy. You cannot know in advance before you buy them. You have to wait and see. That happened with Ángel Di María and Falcao.”
Memphis Depay was an unused substitute in the Everton win at the weekend. In his place, on the left wing, Anthony Martial put in an incredible performance doing everything but scoring.
