This Friday, Rudi Garcia returned to the turbulent summer of Memphis Depay at a press conference. The orienteering coach was also a guest of the Téléfoot Canal and did not hide the fact that his captain’s future remained very uncertain.
Memphis Depay was under contract until June 2021, preparing to move to Barcelona during the summer transfer window. The Dutch striker was indeed ready to join his former coach Ronald Koeman who made him his offensive priority. However, Ousmane Dembélé did not leave the company and the Club Culé was therefore unable to fund this operation. All of this should only be postponed as the Catalan press has already announced that the Memphis Depay broadcast should be completed next January so that Olympique Lyonnais can get compensation for their player despite everything. While Rudi Garcia mentioned the situation at Memphis Depay at a press conference this Friday, the orienteering trainer added a layer to the microphone of the Téléfoot canal.
“We talked to Memphis about everything”
“I spoke to him as I could to many others, although we had a little less time because they came back today (Friday) for some or yesterday for some. other. We talked about everything. We only have one wish: to have fun in the field and to have fun. It’s to win the games first and foremost, so everyone needs to be 100% focused on our results, as Memphis said. and bring back that extraordinary state of mind that we were able to show in the Champions League and that will help us with this restart in the championship. This is how we see things with an important goal of regaining the first three places as quickly as possible so that there is no more time to lose, ”explained Rudi Garcia before the trip to Strasbourg. this Sunday (1 p.m.).
“There is no coach in the world who knows what will happen in January.”
Rudi Garcia, who was also asked about the Dutchman’s future, admits that he doesn’t know if he can count on the latter after January: “I think there is no coach in the world who knows what is going on. happen in January for all of its players, and not just one. I’ve said many times that a transfer window that ends when the first days of the championship have started is an anomaly. This year it was twice that, but at the moment it is an exceptional situation. “The future of Memphis therefore remains very uncertain at OL.
