Lyon SD Juninho on Memphis Depay: “I think he needs to work more off the ball.”

Speaking on OLTV last night, Lyon Sporting Director Juninho did not have kind words for Memphis Depay.

“Memphis, he has done his time. The president made a lot of efforts for him to extend. Memphis, he wanted a team for him. That is not a criticism. I had a good relationship with him. However, it was as if the whole team had to work around him and that was very hard. Because everyone needs to feel like they are working equally. There are only 4 players in the world who you should do everything for him: Messi, Cristiano Ronaldo, Neymar and Mbappé. If you have one of them, things should work around them. Sorry, I think Memphis is good, but not at the level of those four. And I think he needs to work more off of the ball.”
