Memphis Depay is happy that he is after quite a difficult period with Olympique Lyon can focus on the Dutch national team. The 25-year-old attacker hopes in Orange to show that he was the final games in France were passed over by trainer Bruno Génésio.
Memphis began the season consistently in the base, but of the last five matches played, he stood up but once to the kick off. In the last two games in Ligue 1 against Strasbourg and Montpellier remained the Dutchman even ninety minutes on the bench.
“We should not make it larger than it is, but I am frustrated about the last few games,” says Memphis in conversation with the NIS. “I don’t know what the reason was that I the last matches have not been played. It is something I me worse, but now I must show that I do hear.”
“Orange is also a good time. How good is it as I’m after that period of time should report to the Dutch national team? I play in a great team that already had a number of good results and the confidence has to be that a sequel to give. I should not complain.”

“I create the most opportunities and am involved’
Memphis, that in the achtstefinaleduels from Olympique Lyon to FC Barcelona in the Champions League two times in the was, seems to be in the Dutch national team in any case not to worry about goals.
In the first ten international matches under coach Ronald Koeman was the former attacker of Sparta Rotterdam, PSV and Manchester United on the opening kickoff. Only in the friendly game against Slovakia he was prematurely substituted.
“People sometimes ask how it is possible that I in Lyon is not the same game can show as in the Dutch national team,” said 44-fold international of Memphis, on behalf of Orange thirteen hits to his name.
“The statistics show that I always have the most opportunities to create and get involved. That keep I do. I come here now as I at the end of last year, I left Orange. If a lucky and happy man that is focused on achieving good results.”
The Dutch national team plays Thursday in The Cockpit against White-Russia the first duel in the kwalificatiereeks for the european CHAMPIONSHIPS 2020. The team of Koeman takes over the Sunday in the Johan Cruijff ArenA against Germany.
