Koeman: Why it didn't work at Man Utd for Depay

Netherlands coach Ronald Koeman says Memphis Depay was too young at Manchester United.

The 25-year-old forward spent two years with United between 2015 and 2017 making 33 appearances.

However, Koeman believes the Lyon star, a target for Tottenham, could now be ready for a Premier League return.

"I think he's a top player and maybe during his time at Manchester United he was a little bit too young," Koeman said.

"He's now more experienced and what he's showed and what he has done for the national team is great and I'm really glad that we have that kind of player in our national team."
