Memphis Depay formalized his departure from OL with a farewell message this Sunday.
The end of the season is also the time to say goodbye. At the end of the lease in Lyon, Memphis Depay has formalized his departure from the Rhone club via a message broadcast on his social channels. The Batavian will therefore play this Sunday (9 p.m.) against Nice in Ligue 1, its last match with Olympique Lyonnais, despite President Jean-Michel Aulas’ desire to extend it. “I want to speak directly to the supporters. I really appreciated what you have given me as a player. When I am in the field, you have given me a super power to be decisive. The club needs that kind of atmosphere in the stadium. I am sure that when you return to the stadium, you will set it on fire! The players need you, I had a lot of fun playing in front of you, ”slipped the Dutchman in a video posted by OL on Twitter.
Depay, Barça opens its arms to him
“One of the moments I will never forget is against Leipzig, when we qualified. It was a wonderful moment! Even what happened afterwards, it brought us closer after the fact (the players had an argument with the supporters after the qualification for the knockout stages of the Champions League in December 2019, note). I want to thank you for cheering me on and thanking you for your support to the team. (…) I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart for your support and for everything ”, added the Batavian, now expected at FC Barcelona.
