Manchester United winger Memphis Depay is confident he can forge a successful partnership with skipper Wayne Rooney this season.

Depay has arrived at Old Trafford determined to replicate the form that resulted in 22 goals for PSV Eindhoven last season, and earn a £25m move to United.

And the Dutchman was full of praise for Rooney after the match at CenturyLink Field.

"Wayne coached me a lot through the game and talked to me about which position I should take and when to defend," Depay said.

"We have to form a duo and I have the right feeling with him. It's an honour to play with such a legend like Wazza."

While United are currently bereft of options in attack after the departure of Robin van Persie and Radamel Falcao, manager Louis van Gaal may give Javier Hernandez an opportunity to lead the line this season.

Hernandez spent last season on loan at Real Madrid, and Van Gaal has challenged the player to show his worth.

"He can prove himself again and now Falcao and Van Persie are gone, his chances are better," Van Gaal said.

United have switched the venue for their next game, against San Jose Earthquakes, to cut down on the distance the players will have to travel while on tour.

Van Gaal’s side were due to play Tuesday's match at the 60,000 capacity Cal Memorial Stadium in Berkley - but will instead take on San Jose at the nearby Avaya Stadium - which holds just 16,000 spectators.
