Memphis Depay has been a revelation for club and country this season, but a former Dutch coach has explained why the winger failed at Manchester United.
After impressing for the Netherlands at the 2014 World Cup, the winger joined the Red Devils under Louis Van Gaal a few weeks later.
Memphis only made 53 appearances in his three years at Old Trafford, scoring seven goals, but he failed to set the world a light and was eventually sold by Jose Mourinho last season.
Former Dutch U21 coach Cor Pot felt Depay went to the Red Devils too early in his footballing career.
"I found Memphis especially a very positive boy," Pot told Voetbalprimeur, according to the Mirror.
"You already saw that it was a very great talent, maybe he went to Manchester United a bit too early, and that was all too fast. He was just a basic player in Eindhoven, Lyon was a good step for Memphis. It's fantastic now.
"He keeps on developing himself - not only as a player, but also as a person - Memphis gets a bit calmer, does not do any crazy things anymore, but at the time he was a bit shy.
"Of course you had that fuss with that extravagant behaviour. That seems a bit over now, I think he's doing fine."
