Manchester United winger Memphis Depay is reportedly furious after being left out of the squad to face Crystal Palace in the FA Cup final today. 

This has been documented by, who claim that his mood has soured since being told in a face-to-face meeting with Louis van Gaal that he won't be involved against the Eagles. 

The report claims, however, that the former PSV man stayed at Carrington to wish his teammates good luck ahead of their departure on Friday afternoon.

Memphis has endured a torrid debut campaign on English soil, failing to prove his credentials under Van Gaal's regime.

Indeed, he has netted just two goals in 29 Premier League appearances this term. It's not exactly surprising, then, that the United boss has opted to leave him out of his match-day squad. 

Memphis struggles 

It remains to be seen as to whether Memphis will stay on at Old Trafford for the long-term, but this latest snub will most definitely hurt him. 

In all honesty, he may never come to prominence under Van Gaal. Angel di Maria experienced a tricky time under him last season and duly left the club behind in favour of Ligue 1 outfit PSG. 

It's clear for all to see that the club's number seven has a great deal of talent - he has enjoyed a couple of fine games for the Red Devils - but he's desperately in need of a boost of confidence. Unfortunately, after this latest snub, he could be at an all-time low.
