Depay opens up on Man Utd nightmare that left Pogba & Ibrahimovic puzzled


The Dutch forward endured a tough time at Old Trafford, with confused team-mates asking why Jose Mourinho froze him out

Memphis Depay is back in the big time at Barcelona, having left Lyon as a free agent this summer to head for Camp Nou, and the Dutch forward is looking to prove himself at the highest level following a forgettable stint at Manchester United between 2015 and 2017.

The Netherlands international was taken to Old Trafford by fellow countryman Louis van Gaal in a £25 million ($34m) deal, but struggled to unlock his full potential in England and eventually headed to France after being frozen out by Jose Mourinho.

His snubbing by a Portuguese coach left many team-mates confused, including Paul Pogba and Zlatan Ibrahimovic, with a confident character left with little choice but to move on after seeing promising progress stall.
