Speaking to AD, Memphis has admitted his frustration at a difficult first few months with his new club, but also believes he will turn it around with failure not an option.

Memphis said, “It’s frustrating. Also, because I know I can do a lot better. I just had to settle in. Get used to the football in the Premier League, to my new life in England. A lot has changed in a very short amount of time. Of course you want everything to go smoothly, but sometimes that isn’t always realistic.”

“I want to perform from the moment I arrive, that’s something I demand from myself. I guess that’s my street attitude; do not fail. Failure just isn’t an option. Maybe that’s because of my childhood and background. A few people really know what I’ve been through, and I would like to keep it that way, but I’ve heard too many times, also in school: you’re never be any good. Maybe it was my own doing, I wasn’t an easy kid, but still… You don’t say something like that to a child. You just don’t do that.

“I think it made me more determined. I often think about the people telling me my life wasn’t going anywhere. ‘Ha, look at me now. Not that bad right?”
