Arrived free from Olympique Lyonnais this summer, Memphis Depay (27) could not hope for a better start with FC Barcelona. Author of two goals in as many appearances for Barça, the Dutch international shines during the summer preparation of the club culé. Among the Blaugranas, the performance of the former player of the Gones already seems to seduce them. At the end of the Barcelona victory, this Saturday, against Stuttgart (3-0) where the neo-Catalan distinguished himself by opening the scoring after eliminating an opposing player with a sombrero shot on the right foot before concluding with a volley , Clément Lenglet did not fail to greet his debut.
“He is a player who has a lot of qualities. I know him because I watch Ligue 1 a lot and he has the quality to hold the ball and he has the dribble. He is doing very well in football and also in the locker room. He’s a happy person. ” Same story with his trainer Ronald Koeman who had made the former Red Devil his top priority: “People probably know Memphis because he’s been at United, Lyon and turned out to be a goalscorer; today he scored the first one he had. in a beautiful individual action. With his game, his speed and his strength, he gives other things to the team. His connection with Antoine is very good, he gives us a lot of his quality. ” In recent days, Sergi Roberto had also gone there with his glowing comment: “everyone knows him. He is a player who has a lot of qualities and we have seen him at the international level and with Lyon. He’s a great player and in the few training sessions we’ve had with him you can already see that he has some impressive qualities. I’m sure he will help us a lot. ”
