EPL: Memphis Depay willing to take on the no.7 shirt pressure

Memphis Depay is confident he will be able to cope with the pressure of wearing the famous No 7 for Manchester United.

The 21-year-old asked for the famous shirt which was previously worn by Eric Cantona, David Beckham and Cristiano Ronaldo following the departure of Angel Di Maria to Paris Saint-Germain.

And Depay is happy to take the pressure on his shoulders and is convinced he will have a good first year at the club.

“Yes, of course (I’m aware of the pressure) and the history,” the United forward said.

“I appreciate the history, but I want to be my own man. It’s an honour to wear the number seven and I will wear it with pride.

“Last year I played with seven on my back (for PSV) and I scored a lot of goals so I am confident with that number.”
