Man United’s Memphis Depay gives his mum footy boots for Mother’s Day [Instagram]

Today is Mother’s Day, and footballers have been taking to social media in their droves to shout out their mums and wives.

Most of the footballers’ posts were rather mundane, and then Man United’s Memphis Depay took to Instagram.

In an interesting move, the Dutch international declared how his was giving his mum a pair of football boots to commemorate the day.

Surely flowers, chocolates or dinner would have been more appropriate? Unless, of course, Depay’s mum is a keen footballer herself.

Not only did Memphis think footy boots were a nice gift, but he also got them for free from Under Armour.

Way to spend the money!

In fairness, at least the boots were colourful and had tulips on them.
