Man U warn Depay

Lesotho Times - - Sport -

MANCH­ESTER — Mem­phis Depay ( pic­tured) has been told to curb his flam­boy­ant life­style and con­cen­trate on his game by Ryan Giggs, ac­cord­ing to re­ports.

Depay’s per­for­mance was slated in Manch­ester United’s 3-0 de­feat against Arse­nal ear­lier this month when he was hauled off at half-time and re­placed by Marouane Fel­laini and the Sun­day Peo­ple claim as­sis­tant man­ager Giggs has handed the Hol­land for­ward a dress­ing down over that dis­play and his re­cent con­duct.

The 21-year-old was a vir­tual spec­ta­tor at The Emi­rates as Arse­nal de­stroyed United with three goals in the first 20 min­utes and Depay was given the hook af­ter fail­ing to track back and help a defence that was strug­gling to cope with the Gun­ners’ for­ward move­ment.

He was later be­lieved to have gone out af­ter the Emi­rates hu­mil­i­a­tion -- a fact that did not go down well with Louis Van Gaal, and Giggs, who was schooled un­der Sir Alex Fer­gu­son’s strict regime, has been the one told to try and rein Depay in.

Depay has shown flashes of bril­liance since he ar­rived from PSV Eind­hoven for £25mil­lion in the sum­mer, but whereas fel­low new re­cruit An­thony Mar­tial has ar­rived and hit the ground run­ning, Depay has strug­gled to con­sis­tently get to grips with the Pre­mier League.

He has scored just once in eight Pre­mier League games and the re­port claims Giggs has told Depay to keep a lower pro­file in pub­lic and fo­cus on get­ting his per­for­mances on the pitch to the stan­dard re­quired at Old Traf­ford.”
