Memphis Depay is eager to prove his worth to Jose Mourinho after the United boss told him he believes in him both publicly and in private.
Memphis has far from lived up to his £25million price tag during his time at Old Trafford. Memphis arrived from PSV at the start of last season after scoring 22 goals in the Eredivise but has suffered with poor form and inconsistent performances.
Memphis stated that United is his dream club but has admitted he wants to be playing more.
“Things are going well on the training pitch.
“I am fresh and fit. Mourinho is a great coach. He has told me he believes in me, both in person, but also publicly.
“I would rather not talk about last season. That is something of the past. I should have performed better. Being a fringe player is not the role I want.
“I am not happy just because I play for Manchester United. This is my dream club, but I still want to play.
“It is difficult that I am not always part of the match squad [at United], I feel like a loaded gun. I am ready to play, but I have to wait for my chance.”
Mourinho is yet to give Memphis his chance this season with Mourinho handing him just 1 start and making 4 substitute appearances across all competitions.
