Depay: I Want To Be The Best In The World At United

share on:

Manchester United midfielder, Memphis Depay is hoping to show his best for United in the second half of the season, with the dutch hoping to be the best in the world.

Depay enjoyed a good start to his career with United scoring three in two matches in all competitions, but has endured a slump, scoring just three since then.

Depay says it has taken him longer than he anticipated to settle into his new club, especially with the leap in quality compared to the Eredivisie.

“I want to become a star. Failure is not an option. I want to aim as high as possible. I want to become the best player in the world,” he told Algemeen Dagblad.

“That’s my goal and I can cope with the pressure. I am much further in my development than three or four months ago. I now have to show it on the pitch with goals and assists.

“The difference with the Eredivisie is huge. Defenders are physically incredibly strong, in great shape and never afraid. That was all new to me and I had to get used to it.

“In the Premier League, you always have to be at your best. You get forced to get the best out of yourself. Good is not good enough at United.

“It’s frustrating that I have not been able to show what I can do. Because I know I can do a lot better than this. I had to get used to the Premier League and my new life in England.

“A lot of things have changed for me. Of course, you want to succeed right away, but that is not always realistic.”
