Holland legend Arjen Robben has come to the defence of struggling Manchester United star Memphis by saying that he has no doubts about the future of the player.
The Express quotes Robben as saying:
“Memphis is a great talent,”
“I am convinced he will settle at Manchester United.”
Manchester United fans have written to us in their droves about the form of Memphis with many of them likening him to Nani in terms of his lack of consistency.
But we feel that it’s an unfair comparison.
Nani frustrated everyone for 7 years at Old Trafford but Memphis is only in his first few months at the club after leaving a relatively small league.
And we still feel that he is more likely to follow a Ronaldo trajectory than a Nani curve.
What he needs more than anything right now is some love and confidence from Manchester United.
Louis van Gaal can be tough on his players but we think Memphis is the sort who thrives when he is given the love.
At 21 he has a whole career ahead of him and Manchester United will surely see a huge return on their investment if they handle the player’s development in the right way.
But soccersweep is certainly backing him to become one of the best – he’s got the lot.
