As in a recent interview with beIN Sport, the 24-year-old Netherlands international said, “I have no bitterness towards Mourinho,” 

“I did what I had to do in training. Of course, I didn't understand his choices, but he was the boss. I had to accept those choices. I think I was not good enough for him. But it's okay, I'm showing my quality here."

“I'll be back to the top and we'll see what will happen.

“Leaving Manchester United? That was not complicated. I'm young, I need to play.”

“When I think about the last time I played a whole 90 minutes before coming here, it was a year ago. It's incredible.”
