Manchester United winger Memphis Depay admits that he did develop some doubts about his future with the Netherlands team, but is again eager to impress for his country.

The Dutch winger started brightly for Manchester United this season, but his performances dropped during the winter months and he lost his place in the starting eleven.

While he recently showed some good form in the Red Devils shirt, he is still not a regular for Louis van Gaal’s team, and Depay admits that his struggles at Manchester United also made him doubtful about his future with the Dutch national team.

However, the winger insisted that he has cast aside those doubts, and is ready to prove that he is good enough to play for the Oranje on a consistent basis.

The winger told NOS when asked whether he doubted his international future, because of his stuttering career at Old Trafford: “There have been times, when I have had some doubts.  


“I had that time when I was playing less, but at the moment I have no doubts.

"I want to show that I still belong with the Oranje.”

Depay was one of the players who were heavily criticised for the Netherlands’ failure to qualify for this summer’s European Championship in France, and he was even dropped from the team.

He will be looking to earn the faith of his people when the Dutch take on France on Friday night at home, before playing England at Wembley next Tuesday.
