Manchester United boss Louis van Gaal admits he expects more from summer signing

first_imggetty Louis van Gaal admits Memphis Depay has not lived up to expectations since his £25million move to Manchester United.With Wayne Rooney, Anthony Martial and Marouane Fellaini unavailable, Van Gaal could ask Depay to lead the line for United at Watford on Saturday.Should he be restored to the starting XI, it will be the first time Depay has started a Barclays Premier League game in seven weeks.Earlier this summer, Van Gaal hailed Depay as the “greatest talent of his age”, but the Dutch forward has looked nothing like the man who topped the Eredivisie scoring charts with 22 goals for PSV Eindhoven last season.When asked if he expected more of his compatriot, Van Gaal said: “Of course, because otherwise he was still in the team.“Otherwise I don’t look for another solution and (that is why) I have kept Jesse Lingard and Andreas Pereira, for that option.”Depay’s confident persona is said to have not gone down well with some at United, but Van Gaal insists the forward is applying himself correctly in training.“Now he has to fight back and he does it, so I am satisfied (with him),” Van Gaal said.“There is always a chance (he will play on Saturday). I have to see and compare players.“He is always looking very good.“Jesse Lingard has played very well, but it’s a question if he is consistent and that we have to wait and see.“I don’t have any problems with players but sometimes they are out of the team because their competitor is in that moment in a better shape but that doesn’t mean that I have a quarrel with the player. It’s a matter of form.” Depay says he was treated like a child by Van Gaal center_img 1last_img read more
