Depay Holds No Grudge Against Mourinho

share on:

Despite not getting regular playing time under Mourinho, Memphis Depay says he had no problems with the manager.

The 22-year-old winger swapped United for Lyon this month, joining for a fee that could potentially rise to £21.7 million.

And Mourinho has not ruled out Depay returning to the club, believing he has the potential to be a very good player.

And Depay does not appear to hold any grudge, telling OL TV: “His words were nice. In Manchester, I always worked as I had to. For me personally, it wasn’t all that easy, I needed to play. But we didn’t have a bad relationship.


Depay made his debut for Lyon as a substitute in the 3-1 win over Marseille at the weekend. And he says he is ready to push for a starting place: “I feel very good, in top form. My first week was good, training went very well, and little by little I’m getting back into the rhythm.

“Now I think I’m ready to start a game as of the next match. I’m training hard, my fitness is good. I think I can push for a starting place for the next game.”
