Van Gaal: Memphis Depay So Good I Could Have Kissed Him




Manager Louis van Gaal said he wanted to "kiss" Memphis Depay after the Dutch midfielder scored two and set up the third in Manchester United's 3-1 win over Club Brugge in the first leg of their Champions League playoff at Old Trafford on Tuesday.


Memphis, who was deployed in his favoured starting position on the left rather than as a traditional No. 10, showed the kind of form that led United to pay PSV Eindhoven a reported £25 million for the 21-year-old in May.

"When you score a goal then you are the hero," Van Gaal told reporters. "I want to kiss him tonight, because when you score two goals and give an assist also, then normally in the world you are the hero."

United left back Luke Shaw, who along with Memphis was one of the best players on the pitch, also praised his team mate's performance and first goals for the club.

"Of course I am really happy for him today," the England international said. "Now he's off the mark, hopefully it can bring him many more goals."
