Memphis Depay’s 1st start since May 2016 with Man United went badly (Video)

Memphis Depay’s 1st start since May 2016

Dutch international forward Memphis Depay is looking to restart his career in Ligue 1.

Following a largely torrid time at Man United following a move from PSV 18 months ago, Depay joined Lyon in the January transfer window.

At United, Depay was often far too inconsistent, and those traits were on show as Lyon were beaten 2-1 at home by Lille.

A rough performance

Memphis Depay started a league game for the first time since May 2016 with Manchester United v Norwich, which was 266 days ago.

He only lasted 68 minutes.

Memphis kept giving the ball away during the Lille game, as he struggled to impose himself on the action.

Comically, the French broadcasted predicted he’d be invisible before the game.
