Memphis Depay may need to leave Manchester United after being left out of Thursday’s Europa League squad, says Fenerbahce coach Dick Advocaat.
Jose Mourinho has not included Depay in his 21-man selection for the tie against Fenerbahce in Turkey, despite confirming the 22-year-old is not injured.
“The potential is there for him to be a good player,” said Advocaat, who handed Depay his debut at PSV. “You cannot lose that, he has the quality to be a top player, but the problem for him is that there are so many quality players in that squad.
“So for himself it is important to start playing regularly at the age that he is at – otherwise the way, I think, is that maybe he has to find another solution [club] because he is too good to sit on the bench.
“I still believe in him, he has the right mentality, the right character to play for United, but there are so many options there. Regular playing time will help his progression.”
