Memphis Depay WILL come good for Manchester United, insists Blind

Daley Blind believes it’s only “a matter of time” before Memphis Depay starts to shine for Manchester United.

The 21-year-old, a £22.3 million summer signing from PSV, was subdued in United’s 1-0 win over Aston Villa on Friday and missed a one-on-one chance against Brad Guzan in the second half.

But Blind is backing his Dutch team-mate to open his account for United soon.

“I think it’s a matter of time for Memphis,” Blind told MUTV.

“You’ve seen how much quality he has and how strong he is. We can see some nice things from him.

“He’s just got to keep going, he tries very hard and the goals will come for sure.”

Annan Januzaj’s first-half strike was enough to secure a second Premier League victory for Louis van Gaal’s side and Blind has praised the winger’s mentality.

“I’m very happy for Adnan,” said the Netherlands international.

“He tries very hard in the training sessions and now we’ve seen how skilful he is with the goal, so I’m very pleased for him.”
