Memphis Depay has tipped his Lyon teammate Kenny Tete to earn a Netherlands recall if he can get regular playing time.

Tete has struggled to hold down a regular spot in the Lyon side this season but was named in the L’Equipe team of the week after his performance against Nimes at the weekend.

Speaking at a press conference ahead of Lyon’s Champions League clash with RB Liepzig, Memphis Depay tipped his teammate to earn an Oranje recall.

He said on Tete, “He feels good and strong. Kenny is someone who always works hard at the training and has a lot of potential and quality. He is one of the most difficult right backs to pass.

“It has not always been easy for him, but we know that he is always ready when it is needed. He can now show that he is good and he must do what he can and what we expect from him. Kenny is a good boy and when he plays we also know that he will be joining the national team again.”
