Memphis Depay confident he can help Anthony Martial and vice versa at Manchester United

Memphis Depay believes he can help Anthony Martial and vice versa in terms of settling into life at Manchester United.

Memphis, 21, and Martial, 19, joined Man United this summer in big money deals from their respective clubs in what were huge moves for both of them.

Having players such as Luke Shaw, 20, who has plenty of Premier League experience, will no doubt help as well and Memphis admits he speaks to the left-back quite a lot already.

“It’s a new experience for me playing in the Premier League, so I have to improve and I know that,” Memphis told reporters at United’s pre-match press conference on Monday night.

“Anthony and I are both young, so we can help each other, we can ask each other questions. It’s the same with Luke Shaw, I talk a lot with him.

“He has played longer in the Premier League than me so I have a lot of questions for me and he helps me also, so we can all help each other.”

United have always based their traditions around youth and there are plenty of reasons in this current squad to be excited on that front.

From Martial and Memphis to Pereira, Wilson and Januzaj, there are a host of young players who have great prospects for the future. Having so many younger players in and around the team helps them all feel more comfortable and certainly keeps the senior players on their toes.

Martial will be happy that he isn’t the only young player at United because he can share the journey with others and although it’s far from the utopian Class of ’92, Louis van Gaal does have a few youngsters now in his squad which could set the world alight in years to come.
