The Dutch international had a difficult start to the campaign, and was even dropped from the Lyon squad at one point, but in recent weeks his form has improved. At the weekend, Memphis starred in the 4-0 win at Troyes with a fantastic hat-trick.

Speaking to RMC Sport, Lyon coach Bruno Genesio admitted he spoke with Memphis about his form recently, but is happy with the way he is performing now.

He said,  “I do not know if I can say I woke him up, but I had good conversations with him,

“He has criticized himself and has become a different player than we saw at the beginning of the season.

“I’m glad he was rewarded with three goals. That’s very important to an attacker, but I’m also happy with his involvement in the game.”
