Memphis Depay has urged fans not to compare him to Cristiano Ronaldo and let him play his own game as he looks to acclimatise himself to the Premier League.

The winger signed from PSV Eindoven in the summer and is regarded as one of the best young talents in Europe.

He has previously worked with Louis van Gaal in the World Cup where he was among the few bright sparks in the tournament. The Manchester United manager took the Netherlands to a third place finish behind Germany and Argentina and has been scouting the 22-year-old since then.

Depay is known for his pace and ability to score goals, which has seen him being likened to Ronaldo during his time at United. The Portuguese international signed for United in 2003 and is considered to be one of the best players to have plied their trade under Sir Alex Ferguson.

Should Depay manage to replicate the form shown by Ronaldo in his prime, he will take the Red Devils a long way in challenging for the title. However, Depay insists that he is still too young for such a comparison and that he would rather have his feet speak than comment on this matter.

"That is the best player in the world," Depay said when compared to Ronaldo, as quoted by the Mirror.

"I don't want to talk too much. I want to show it on the pitch. I am still young, not for many years in the game. I played two seasons for PSV.

"I want to let my feet speak. I don't want to compare myself with somebody like that.

"I believe I will work on it and I am excited to do my job for Manchester United and to score goals. I am a striker so I want to score goals and get assists.

"I trained three times this week and I feel different than the Dutch league in training. I have to improve myself so I can work hard and show the boss I can handle it," he added.
