The Dutch winger opted to leave Old Trafford and sign for French side Lyon at the turn of the year after finding his first team opportunities to be severely restricted in the first half of the season.
Depay had joined Manchester United to much fanfare in May 2015 under Louis van Gaal but the winger failed to hold down a regular spot in the Red Devils first team.
However, the Netherlands international insists that he has no bitterness towards Mourinho or his old club in the wake of his move and says he opted to leave purely because of his lack of playing time.
Depay said in an interview with BeIN Sports: “Leaving Manchester United? That was not complicated. I’m young, I need to play.
“When I think about the last time I played a whole 90 minutes before coming here, it was a year ago. It’s incredible.
“I have no bitterness (towards Mourinho). I did what I had to do in training. Of course I didn’t understand the choices, but he was the boss.
“I had to accept those choices. I think I was not good enough for him. But it’s okay, I’m showing my quality here.
“I’ll be back to the top and we’ll see what will happen.”
Manchester United are currently preparing for their Premier League clash against Middlesbrough at the Riverside Stadium on Sunday afternoon.
