Manchester United winger Memphis Depay has been warned by the club coaches over his flashy lifestyle.
The Dutch winger has struggled to settle into the Premier League since his big money move from PSV and it seems that his flashy lifestyle might have something to do with it.
Depay helped his former team PSV to a title win last season and was snapped up by Louis Van Gaal in the summer. However, the young winger has failed to showcase his outstanding talent so far and has looked out of place.
According to the English media, the Dutchman has been living an extravagant lifestyle and has often been pictured going out, more than most players.
Former Manchester United player and now a coach, Ryan Giggs has warned Depay about his lifestyle and has asked him to focus on his football.
“Memphis is photographed out and about more than other players and that’s not gone unnoticed.
“He’s been told to keep his head down a bit while his football catches up with the rest of his profile”, claimed a Manchester United insider.
Despite his occasional brilliance in the Champions League, the 21 year old has looked out of sorts in the Premier League and put on a shocking display against Arsenal last week.
Furthermore, reports emerged yesterday that Depay has had a training ground bust up with former Manchester United fan favorite, Robin Van Persie.
It appears that the duo had a heated altercation during their training with the national team. Manchester United defender Daley Blind was present during the incident and acted as the peacemaker.
Having forked out a considerable sum of money for the 21 year old, Manchester United are bound to expect a better return on the pitch and are right to question his lifestyle. In his interviews Depay comes across as a level headed person and is willing to work hard.
Perhaps the glamorous lifestyle of the Premier League is taking its toll, but Depay is in very capable hands of Van Gaal and Ryan Giggs, who will surely help him honor his phenomenal talent.
