Morgan Schneiderlin wishes Memphis Depay a happy 22nd birthday

Morgan Schneiderlin has taken to social media to wish Memphis Depay a happy birthday after the Dutchman turned 22 on Saturday.

Depay and his Manchester United team-mates are gearing up for their Premier League trip to Sunderland on Saturday as they look to return to winning ways following their 1-1 draw at Chelsea last weekend.

United midfielder Schneiderlin uploaded the picture above onto his personal Instagram account on Saturday morning and wrote: “Happy B day to the one and only @memphisdepay …. Let go and get them today …”

Depay has struggled to find consistent form for United since arriving at the club from PSV Eindhoven during the summer transfer window.

He has found himself on the bench in recent weeks and has only managed to score two Premier League goals for the Red Devils so far this season.

Depay has been limited to just 12 Premier League starts but will be hoping for a run-out at the Stadium of Light on Saturday lunchtime.

United head into the game in fifth place in the table, six points behind Manchester City in fourth.
