Depay holds no grudge against Mourinho

Memphis Depay has said that there is no bad blood between him and Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho. 

Depay, who has left United to join Lyon, played just 20 minutes in the Premier League this season as he has fallen out of favour with Mourinho. 

Despite this, Depay has insisted that he harbours no ill feeling towards the Portuguese tactician. 

"His words were nice. In Manchester, I always worked as I had to,” Depay told OL TV. “For me personally, it wasn't all that easy, I needed to play. But we didn't have a bad relationship.

"He's a great coach and a great person. Now we'll see here how I play. In any case, I think he has said good things about me."

The 22-year-old came off the bench to make his debut for Lyon in their 3-1 win over Marseille last weekend, but Depay is now looking to break into the starting line-up. 

"I feel very good, in top form. My first week was good, training went very well, and little by little I'm getting back into the rhythm,” he said. “Now I think I'm ready to start a game as of the next match. I'm training hard, my fitness is good. I think I can push for a starting place for the next game."
