Memphis struggled during his one-and-a-half year spell at Manchester United but has refound his form with Lyon in France, scoring 16 goals and contributing 12 assists in 34 league games this season.

Speaking to bwin, former Arsenal winger Robert Pires said, “Memphis Depay is an outstanding player.

“He struggled at Manchester United because it is difficult to change country and enter a new club, a new language and a new environment at such a young age. He is now a very important player for Lyon and he is making a big difference in the crucial games.

“I think Manchester United made a mistake when they sold him and they could regret it.”
