Memphis Depay explains why it never worked out for him at Manchester United

Memphis Depay has admitted his move to Manchester United came too early. Depay joined United in 2015 and seemed the perfect remedy for United’s woes at number seven. Unfortunately, for the Red Devils, he became yet another promising signing turned sour by poor performances and a bad relationship with Jose Mourinho. 18 month later Depay moved to Lyon. “My mental state is different. I was 21 back then when I was with United and now I am 25 so obviously, I am a more matured human being now, than when I was in Manchester,” Memphis told Mirror Sport. “Also there is a difference between the French game and the English game and the main difference is the speed of the ball. In England it goes very fast, attack and defence and attack and defence again. “The French game you feel more the control and trying to find our moments and we are all more relaxed playing the ball to each other. For me I don’t know if speed is necessary all the time as it is here because for me it’s all about technique but the Premier League is the toughest in the world."
