Cocu said, “It’s normal you need some time to grow, you need a lot of games.

“Physically he’s very strong and he’s a quick learner also. And I’m sure when he gets some time he’ll get it very fast. He will bring goals.

“He’s a very vertical player who always likes to play towards the goal. Not only will he score goals, he has good vision.

“He will have some ups and downs. I’m sure when he’s been playing a few months, I’m convinced he’ll get better and better.”

Memphis returns to the Philips Stadion on Tuesday when Manchester United take on PSV in the Champions League.
