Man United: Arjen Robben backs Memphis Depay to bounce back

Netherlands forward Arjen Robben backs his compatriot Memphis Depay to bounce back from his current lack of form, having been dropped by Manchester United and his country.

Depay joined United in a £31m deal and Robben says the "talented" former PSV Eindhoven midfielder will have to "show strength," having struggled to secure a regular place in the first team.

Robben adds that he has joined up with the Netherlands squad to face Wales on Saturday against the wishes of his club Bayern Munich.
