Former Holland striker Youri Mulder suggests Manchester United are “fed up” with Memphis Depay after the winger’s mixed start this season.
Much was expected of Depay after the 21-year-old joined the club in a £25million transfer from PSV Eindhoven, but the Dutchman has only shone in patches.
Last month former Netherlands midfielder Wiliem van Hanegem branded the youngster “lazy” in a bizarre comparison to James Bond villain Goldfinger.
Mulder is the latest to criticise Depay’s attitude, after Holland failed to qualify for Euro 2016 with a 3-2 defeat to 10-man Czech Republic on Tuesday.
“He played one good match for United, against Club Brugge. In the Premier League he suffers, yet his attitude suggests that he is a big star.” said the former Schalke striker.
“It seems that people at Manchester United are starting to get fed up with this.”
Former Nottingham Forest striker Pierre van Hooijdonk also slammed Depay, who failed to step up for the Netherlands in the absence of Arjen Robben.
“The stats of Memphis do not weigh up against his attitude off the pitch. He hasn’t been the player that Oranje needed, especially when Robben was unavailable.”
