The attitude of Manchester United forward Memphis Depay is out of kilter with his performances, according to former Netherlands international Youri Mulder.
The Dutch youngster moved to Old Trafford from PSV Eindhoven in a £27.5m deal over the summer but has failed to live up to his billing, scoring just once in eight Premier League games.
Despite his poor goal return, Depay has projected a confident exterior. Mulder, whose playing day with the international set up ended in 2001, warns it's an attitude that's rubbing some at Manchester United up the wrong way.
"He played one good match for United, against Club Brugge [in the Champions League]," Mulder told NOS as quoted by Goal.
"In the Premier League he suffers, yet his attitude suggests that he is a big star.
"It seems that people at Manchester United are starting to get fed up with this."
Depay featured heavily in the Netherland's doomed Euro 2016 qualification campaign, including last night's 3-2 home defeat to the Czech Republic that confirmed they would not feature in France next summer.
