Writing in his weekly De Telegraaf column, Johan Cruyff praised Depay for his development this season, and offered him some advice ahead of his first Premier League season.

Cruyff wrote, “Depay clearly made some major steps forward this year.”

“He is a player that seeks adventure and always tries to decide a match. He has a good long distance shot and that’s why he is so important for the team.

“These qualities made his transfer possible. And because he is still very young, I give him the advice to keep doing his own thing at Manchester United. In the first year you are at that club, you don’t have to be better than Wayne Rooney.”

On Tuesday, Depay was awarded the Johan Cruyff Prijs for Dutch young player of the year after finishing the Eredivisie season as top scorer for champions PSV with 22 goals.
