Memphis Depay was not happy with the tackle that injured Netherlands captain Virgil van Dijk.

Van Dijk is out for 6-8 months after being injured in a tackle with Everton goalkeeper Jordan Pickford last month.

Speaking to Fox Sports, Memphis said, “At first I didn’t see the violation myself. I have to say I saw him walk off the field and when I saw the violation after that, I did use some words that I can’t repeat.

“How you can injure someone like that, that’s bizarre for me. I’ll leave it at that, it’s very disappointing. It hurts the whole team, including everyone around him. And of course most of all for him. . “

Memphis suffered a similar injury last season and he has pledged to support Van Dijk, “What I say: we can only support him. I’ve walked that route, I know what it feels like. I’m here for him.”
