Memphis Depay has revealed he has not spoken to compatriot Louis van Gaal since he was sacked as Manchester United manager.
Van Gaal handed Memphis his first Netherlands cap before signing him for United, convincing him to pick the Premier League over a move to Paris Saint-Germain.
Memphis has admitted his frustration at a lack of game time for United under Van Gaal, but he has refused to blame his former boss for his poor season, report the Manchester Evening News.
“It’s never nice to be criticised, but it’s part of the game and I have to deal with it,” Memphis told Fox Sports. “The season did not go as planned and that hurt my confidence a bit.

“I do not want to blame the manager for it. I played some good games and some bad matches. I do not want to blame anyone for it. I have not been in touch with Van Gaal yet. I might give him a call or send him a text.
Van Gaal was so loyal to Memphis he included the winger in every matchday squad last season until he excluded him from the FA Cup final teamsheet.
Memphis managed just two Premier League goals and made a measly eight starts this calendar year but is adamant he will regain the form he showed at PSV.
“It’s now up to me to deal with this situation and get back on track,” he added.
“I think every attacker is intuitive. 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.
“I did not play as many games as I hoped and I am obviously disappointed about that. I had different expectations. But I have to deal with that.
“It’s now on to next season. I have to prove my worth during pre-season.”
