Memphis Depay on winning trophies and the comparison with Cristiano Ronaldo


Manchester United winger Memphis Depay says he joined the Red Devils to improve his game and win trophies.

The youngster was boss Louis van Gaal's first summer signing after joining from PSV Eindhoven for £31m.

He finished last season as top scorer in the Eredivisie with 22 goals in 30 games.

"I'm very excited," Depay told the club's official website.

"It's crazy. I had a good season last season and it starts all again. I have to improve myself in the Premier League but I'm very happy to be here.

"[I want] to win trophies with the team. It's the biggest club in the world so we have to play for the trophies.

"I think my team-mates are going to settle me in but I have to also do it myself.

"I'm excited to do my job for Manchester United and to score goals. I have to score goals and give assists.

"We have a lot of quality. I'm the new kid here so I have to find my way but I think the team has all the qualities needed to win the title and all the trophies that are possible to win.

"[Cristiano Ronaldo] is one of the best players – if not the best – in the world.

"I don't want to talk too much; I want to show it on the pitch. I'm still young. I've not been in the game for many years – I played two seasons for PSV. I want to let my feet speak. I don't want to compare myself with someone like that."
