Daley Blind hails ‘great’ talents of Memphis Depay as excitement builds

by Sam Peoples

Daley Blind has praised compatriot Memphis Depay ahead of the 21-year-old’s arrival at Manchester United.

Memphis is widely considered to be one of the brightest young talents in Europe after he fired PSV Eindhoven to the Eredivisie title last season.

Fans have understandably been getting excited about his signing and the player himself has spoke of how he wants to become one of the world’s best.

Blind revealed his admiration for Memphis’ work ethic and insisted he has the potential to make a lasting impact for United.

Speaking about Memphis, Blind said: ”He is a player who can change games. He has a great free-kick, a great dribble, a great shot.

“He’s young, talented and always wants to work hard. He always wants to better himself on the training pitch, that’s how I know him.

“I think he is quiet, but if he has something to say he will, if you know what I mean! Yes, he is very confident, but he is a good guy.”

Memphis knows Louis van Gaal well having worked with him during the 2014 World Cup.

Van Gaal will know how to get the best out of the player but it is important for supporters not to expect too much too early from him. Memphis will need time to adapt to the Premier League but the sky really is the limit for him once he settles in at Old Trafford.
