Wijnaldum on Depay a few weeks after he signed for Lyon:
'His move to Lyon is interesting. Memphis trains incredibly hard, and he also has everything to reach the top. 'There was criticism of his game, I understand that. With his options he needs to play more. But the criticism of what he does outside of playing football, I do not understand.'
They know each other for many years now. It's almost as if Gini knew Depay would be such a success at Lyon. Also, if Wijnaldum thinks he is a good person - that's enough for me.
Depay brings goals and assists, can play upfront, LW (and even behind one or two strikers).
He's hardly going to say, nah he's a lazy B is he?
All players raved about Balotelli etc. they are all teammates at the end of the day.
Wouldn't take anything from those quotes.
