It has been reported that Ajax coach Frank de Boer has jumped to the defence of Manchester United winger Memphis Depay.

The 21-year-old Dutch international has been criticised by fans and pundits for his underwhelming performances since joining from PSV Eindhoven for £25m.

But De Boer says Louis van Gaal will get the best out of Memphis.

“I think Depay needs that kind of coach,” he told Omnisport.

“He has a great mentality but still he is very young and has to know what he has to do to stay on that level or even get better – I think Van Gaal is the right person for that.

“I think he can be a great player for Manchester United because he has everything – he has speed, he has technique, he can score goals and physically he is very strong.

“He normally never gets injured and for his age he has played a lot of games for PSV.”
