Robben’s retirement from international duty has left many wondering who will step up to replace him, with Memphis Depay one of the candidates. The Lyon star has been compared to Robben in the past but he has told NOS that he doesn’t want to be judged alongside the Oranje legend.

He said, “You should not compare me with Arjen Robben. I’m 23.

“I forget that sometimes I’m only 23. Arjen has achieved so many things in his career that I still have to achieve … I’d like to reach that too. I’m dreaming of that, and I’m working on it . ”

Memphis has found his form in recent weeks at Lyon and believes more game time can only help him get better, “I’m really good, but I can get even better. I can show it a lot more often, and with that development I am busy now. Many games will help that out enormously. “
