Manchester United assistant manager Ryan Giggs has expressed unhappiness over the flat performances being shown by Memphis Depay for the Red Devils.
This is as per the Mirror who claim Giggs has warned the young Netherlands international about his off-field behaviours too.
Depay joined Manchester United from PSV Eindhoven for £31m [via the BBC Sport] in the summer, and according to the Telegraph, the tattooed attacker is currently on £150,000-a-week pay at Old Trafford.
The Mirror report that Depay’s recent displays have not gone down well with the Red Devils’ bosses as the 21-year old was substituted at half time against Arsenal – in their Premier League game prior to the international break – due to his failure to contribute defensively.
The newspaper goes on to say that Man United were unhappy with the Dutch youngster after he went on a night out following the 3-0 defeat at the Emirates. It is claimed that senior officials at Old Trafford are worried by his lifestyle too.
Meanwhile, it seems Giggs – a former Red Devil himself – has tried to solve the issue outright by telling Depay to lower his profile and increase his focus more on his football, so says the Mirror.
Depay has bagged just one goal for United in eight Premier League games this term, and has failed to register a single assist.
