Memphis Depay, or simply Memphis as he wants to be known, has gone through a tough time for most of his first season in the Premier League with Manchester United.

But sometimes we forget the Dutch international winger is just 22-years-old.

The ad above from Under Armour perhaps showcases some of the emotions Memphis is feeling right now, as he’s been left out of the team and criticized by Louis Van Gaal and many others following his $37.5 million from PSV Eindhoven last summer.

That said, I asked Van Gaal about Memphis following United’s 3-2 win over Arsenal two weeks ago. He old me it was “his best performance” for Man United. His time is coming.

It’s clear that the message in the ad — “it’s what you do in the dark that will put you in the light” — is something which is currently resonating strongly with Memphis.
