Memphis Depay hits back at Wayne Rooney after his Man United comments

Wayne Rooney on Memphis Depay

Now with DC United, Wayne Rooney has given a variety of press interviews this weekend.

In his sit-down with the Daily Mail, Rooney told a story about Memphis Depay.

Memphis only stayed at Man United for two seasons. The Dutch international scored 22 goals in 50 games for the Red Devils.

Since leaving Old Trafford, Memphis has impressed in Ligue 1 with Lyon.

According to Rooney, Memphis screwed up at Man United for his choice of clothes:

He came on at Stoke away, and he messed up for their goal and he only played 15 minutes, so Van Gaal told him he was playing for the reserves the next day.

So after the game I just said: “Look, it’s going to be a bit difficult for you. Just don’t come in with all your fancy stuff.”

The reserve game was at Altrincham’s ground and he turned up for it in his Rolls Royce, wearing a red leather jacket and a cowboy hat. And I just thought: “What’s the point.”
