World class turn from the United man!
Memphis Depay. At one time, the name itself was enough to send the Eredivisie defenders into bouts of sweat and fright. The arrival of the 20-year-old Dutch league top scorer last season was seen as a coup for Manchester United.
However, after a year, it is almost amazing how one can fall from grace so swiftly. After some great showings in his debut season, the speedy forward has had a permanent bench position under new manager Jose Mourinho, having played only a total of 13 minutes in three substitute appearances till now.
However, the man showed his ability whenever he has been called upon this season, even at the international stage. Last night’s World Cup Qualifier against France was one of those occasions.
In one gorgeous movement, the Dutchman embarrassed French defender Djibril Sidibe, leaving him in a trail of dust. After receiving the ball, Depay effectively shielded the ball from the rushing defender and then fooled him with the slickest of turns, running off in the opposite direction.
