Manchester United star Memphis Depay has issued a warning to rival Premier League clubs after scoring his first goal for the Red Devils, Daily Star reports.
Depay was on target in United’s 3-1 win over San Jose Earthquakes earlier this week, which was his first strike following his £25million move from PSV Eindhoven.
And the Netherlands international has promised fans that they can expect to see much of the same in the upcoming season, which also signals as a warning to the Red Devils’ rivals.
“It’s a great feeling,” he said.
“I’m a striker or attacking midfielder so it’s always nice to score goals and give assists. Today was my first one and, I think, the first of many so I keep working on it.
“Of course, it was a mistake by the defender but Wayne [Rooney] was putting pressure on him so he made the mistake.
“I was reading the situation. I already thought, like gambling, that he was going to lose the ball so I was there and made my first goal.
“I really enjoy it. I’m serious – every day.
“To wake up as a Manchester United player is awesome. I’ve settled in well and the boys are very nice.”
However, earlier reports suggested that head coach Louis van Gaal could instead deploy Depay up front, with the 21-year-old having a keen eye for goal.
Last season, Depay bagged an incredible 28 goals in 40 appearances for the Eredivisie champions, making an additional eight assists.
