Mourinho breaks silence over Memphis Depay, says he could bring him back

Jose Mourinho believes Memphis Depay is a good player despite not playing well when he was at Old Trafford.

Depay was offloaded to Lyon in a cut-price £16million deal after struggling to nail down a spot in the starting XI, but United included a buy-back clause in the transfer.

The striker was back in Manchester for Lyon’s 2-1 win against City on Wednesday night.

When asked about Depay departure during a press conference, here is what Mourinho have to say;
“Because potentially he’s a very good player.

“I think when Mr Van Gaal decided to buy him he did well, he knew him very well from the national team, he was very young when at the World Cup he had flashes of top quality.

“He was playing well in Holland, we know the Dutch league is not the same but he was showing very good things.

“So I think Mr Van Gaal and Manchester United did very well to buy him.

“He didn’t succeed in his 18 months but he’s very young so I think it’s important for the club to complete control of this talent and we all wish he plays very, very well at Lyon and why not to come back because everyone here likes him,” Mourinho said.
