The 21-year-old joined the Red Devils from the Eredivisie side in the summer, and is now having to face them in the first game of the Champions League group stages. He had played for PSV since he was 12-years-old, so it will surely be an emotionally-charged match for the forward.
“Of course, I played for PSV for 10 years before I came to Manchester United,” he said, “So it will a special feeling for me to see my old team mates again and I am looking forward to it.
“When I step on to the pitch I will think about when I first played for PSV but the match is a different thing. A lot of people have asked me if I will celebrate if I score but it’s a game we want to win, I play for United now, so of course I will celebrate and of course I will respect PSV.
“It will be interesting to see what we can do but I think we can do a good job here.”
It being United’s first group stage match in Europe’s premier club competition since David Moyes was in charge, there will be pressure on the team to succeed. Having just beaten fierce rivals Liverpool 3-1, the side will be full of confidence and ready to do this.
However, Louis van Gaal’s side have shown weaknesses this season, losing to Swansea City and struggling to a goalless draw with Newcastle United. Depay has been a part of this, being yet to score or assist a single goal in his five league appearances for the club. He did net twice in the qualifying stage of the Champions League though, against Club Brugge.
