Manchester United’s new signing Memphis Depay has admitted it will be “special” to play against his old side PSV Eindhoven on Tuesday but that won’t stop him celebrating if he scores.

The Dutch young sensation joined Manchester United this summer for £27.9 million after spending 10 long years at PSV.

Last season, he scored 22 goals in Eredivisie and won the division for the Lempke.

The 21-year-old winger will be returning to Philips Stadion for the group stage game of UEFA Champions League and the young man says there will be no such sentimental gestures from him.

He even vowed to celebrate if he finds the net in the game.

“For me it’s a game, so if I score I will celebrate,” he said. “I have respect for PSV, but I am a Manchester United player now.

“I played for 10 years for PSV before I came to Manchester United so [of course] it’s a special feeling for me, also with my old teammates – to see them again and play against them.”

Depay had a mixed start at his new club. He scored a brace against Club Brugge in Champions League playoff game but has found hard to settle in Premier League and was even substituted at half-time in the match against Liverpool on Saturday.

The 21-year-old is not worried, however, and insists he just needs time to adapt to English football.

“I learn so much things here [at PSV] but it’s on a different level,” he said. “The competition is different so I have to learn the English Premier League to improve there.”

“Of course I’ve learned a lot of things from PSV but it’s different.”
