Memphis Depay gives security guard his football boots after Manchester United training

Memphis Depay has endured a frustrating first season at Manchester United since signing from PSV Eindhoven last summer.

Five goals in 43 appearances across all competitions is a poor return for someone who was held in such high regard prior to his move.

The 22-year-old's future is now in doubt as a result, with the general consensus being that he must be sold to recoup some of the £25 million spent on him.

However, his United nightmare clearly hasn't impacted his attitude away from football if his recent gesture to a security guard is anything to go by.

In the image shown below, Depay can be seen shaking the guard's hand after giving him a pair of his Under Armour football boots as he left training.


Depay's woes took another turn for the worse today, though, after being left out of United's squad for the FA Cup final.

The Red Devils face Crystal Palace at Wembley, but their Dutch winger will be forced to watch from the stands as his teammates vie to secure the club's first piece of silverware since 2013.

His FA Cup snub might prove to be the last straw for Depay, who probably envisioned his United career panning out far better than it has.

But for club legend Dwight Yorke, the Dutch starlet must stay and learn from the experience.

He told talkSPORT: "He’s still a young man; he’s only 22. Hopefully, this will be a learning curve, and he’ll come back next year stronger and fitter and raring to go."
