Park played alongside Depay for the Dutch club PSV Eindhoven a couple of years back and he rates him as high as any other young player in the world at the moment.

United sealed the services of Depay in May this year and the 21-year old has found himself in the thick of things straightaway. He has featured in all the 4 Premier games that the Red Devils have played so far in their current campaign.

He is yet to open his account though as far as the goals are concerned, but, he has looked good on the pitch.

Talking about Depay on a television show, Park said, “He is someone whom I believe has got talent in abundance and if his work ethic is good which definitely is, I know that as I have spent time with him, there’s very little doubt in my mind that he will make a big name for himself.”

“I know it’s a big statement to make, but, I would say I see a bit of a Ronaldo in him.”

“You don’t say that about every player, but, Memphis has got to get himself in that league. You see him play and you immediately feel this guy has got something special in him. I hope he goes from strength to strength.”

“The good thing for him is that he is at the right place at the right time. He is only 21 and at this stage, he needs to know his strengths and weaknesses and develop his skills. I don’t think there could have been a better club than United for him to go at.”
