Memphis Depay: This new Man United signing is just like me

Memphis Depay likens himself to new Manchester United signing Zlatan Ibrahimovic

Memphis Depay believes that he possesses some of the same psychological attributes as new Manchester United signing Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

Depay has struggled to break into the Manchester United first team this season under new manager Jose Mourinho.

The Dutch winger has been limited to just one start in all competitions for the Red Devils so far this term as he bids to prove himself to the new man in charge at Old Trafford.

Depay joined United back in the summer of 2015 amid much fanfare but has failed to deliver on a consistent basis for the Red Devils.

However, the winger feels that his determination to succeed will pay dividends in the end, and likened his mentality to new signing Ibrahimovic.

Depay is quoted as saying by Metro: “With Zlatan Ibrahimovic I talk a lot. He has a killer mentality and wants to win everything, even in training. Like me.

“Therefore, the level is so high. I train with top players.”

Both Depay and Ibrahimovic will be hoping to prove themselves as ready to play for United when the Red Devils return to Premier League action after the international break with a crunch clash against bitter local rivals Liverpool at Anfield.
