Memphis Depay says he is not happy to remain at Manchester United if it means only having a supporting role.
The 22-year-old winger joined United from PSV Eindhoven in the summer of 2015, but has fallen out of favour, making just three sub appearances in the league this season.
“I am the same person and I know what I want,” Depay told Dutch newspaper Metro Nieuws. “A supporting role is not for me.
“I’m not a player who is happy with the fact that he is under contract with Manchester United. This is my dream club, but I want to play.”
Memphis revealed Mourinho’s arrival had raised the bar in training and was complimentary about the Portuguese’s coaching.
“The training sessions are going well, I’m sharp and fit, but that applies to everyone,” said Memphis. “The level has become higher. Jose Mourinho is a top coach.
“Mourinho has expressed his confidence in me. Personally, but also in the press.”
Mourinho said in August Memphis’ absence from the Southampton squad had left him feeling ‘sad’ him after the win.
“I arrive in the dressing room after the match and I was happy but then I become sad,” Mourinho explained. “Because I arrive there and all the other guys are there in their nice Paul Smith suit but not a tracksuit, not even playing, not even being on the bench.
“So when I look to Memphis, Carrick, Jones, all these guys I don’t select. I am desperate for September.”
