Speaking to the media ahead of PSV’s Europa League tie with Zenit st Petersburg, coach Phillip Cocu stated Depay has the talent to replicate Arjen Robbens career, and that he believes the winger will probably leave Eindhoven this summer.

Cocu said, “Whether he can be as good as Arjen Robben? I think so. ”

“They are different players but they are both fast and have a good shot and both always have the desire to improve; neither player hides from training, which is a good sign for Depay.

“It’s unfortunate that he might leave in the summer but, on the other hand, we must be proud as a club because we have raised him.

“At some point, it becomes clear that he is ready for the next step and, yes, I think he’s going to leave PSV after this season.”

Depay has scored 21 goals in 27 appearances so far this season, and is top scorer in the Eredivisie.
