Manchester United winger Memphis Depay is keen to breathe fresh life into his faltering career in England under new manager Jose Mourinho after enduring a disappointing debut campaign under former boss Louis van Gaal.

The Netherlands international, who joined United from PSV Eindhoven in June last year, scored two goals in 29 Premier League appearances in his first season, 13 of which came as a substitute.

"I did not play as many games as I hoped and I am obviously disappointed about that," Memphis told British media.

"I had different expectations. But I have to deal with that. You have to make decisions on when to go for an individual action.

"The old Memphis, who beat every opponent, will soon be back again. It's now on to next season. I have to prove my worth during pre-season."

The 22-year-old scored 22 league goals to fire PSV to the Dutch championship in the 2014-15 season but failed to provide a similar spark for United, who missed out on Champions League qualification after finishing fifth.
