Memphis Depay has revealed what Manchester United’s star Paul Pogba had told him under Jose Mourinho.

Former United player has opened up saying Paul Pogba was shocked by Mourinho’s treatment of himself during their time at Old Trafford together.

Depay struggled a lot under Louis van Gaal, but things got even worse when the Portuguese manager arrived.

He told El Periodico: “I’ve thought a lot about why it went wrong.

The current Barcelona player shared about his past situation at the Old Trafford.

“Jose Mourinho came and I fought to get into the team but I think the idea of giving me a chance was never in his head. He never gave me an opportunity. Never.


“I went to his office but it changed nothing. It was a very difficult period, I felt that I was training well and the players themselves did not understand it.

The Dutchman added.

“[Paul] Pogba and Zlatan [Ibrahimovic] told me: “Why don’t you ever play?” For me that was the confirmation that I had no chance.


“And I realised that I didn’t want to be in a big club without playing.”


Memphis Depay joined Manchester United back in the summer transfer window of 2015.
