Memphis Depay Gave the first proof of quality in his debut with the FC Barcelona, in front of the Girona, sealing his big performance with a goal that will generate debate
Memphis Depay Has been one of the four incorporations crash of the FC Barcelona during the market of signings of summer. The Dutch landed in the City Condal pertinent of the Olympique of Lyon like free agent, fulfilling the big 'wish' of Ronald Koeman of reencontrarse with his compatriot, with which already worked in the selection of Low Countries, in the Camp Nou. The forward already has given the first 'tested' of his quality and begins to ilusionar to all the barcelonismo.
In the party in front of the Girona, Memphis went in to the terrain of game before the end of the first part to replace to Rey Manaj in the forward. From his first minutes, showed incisive, participatory and with win of incomodar to the rival defenders. In the second time, especially after Antoine Griezmann jumped to the field, commissioned of merodear the area of Juan Carlos in research of his first as much as player of the Barça and, of so much insist, finished 'wetting' in the estadi Johan Cruyff.
When it ran the minute 85 of party, a player of the Girona avoided an autopase of Griezmann refusing the balloon with the hand and the referee pitó a penal that earned Memphis Depay with a derechazo very strong that touched Juan Carlos, but did not reach to clear and went in to the square. The technician of of the Dutch to define from the eleven metres did not happen unobserved for the Barcelona and left clear that has crumb and will seed a big debate in the Barça.
And it is that from it does a lot of months in the Barcelona group has argued who has to launch the penaltis in addition to Leo Messi. In different opportunities, has been Antoine Griezmann the one who has been expensive to face with the rival goalkeepers, but the French does not generate sufficient confidence from the eleven metres. More than once the 'Principito' erró his shot or was detained, remembering the parties in front of the Betis (detained it Claudio Bravo), in the semifinal of the Supercopa of Spain, in front of the Real Sociedad, with the famous penalti that launched to the clouds.
Also they have tested Dembélé, Pjanic or Frenkie of Jong, but Koeman never has been convinced with the launchings of his players, reason by which more than once have tested them in the trainings, especially after what happened in front of the Real in the Supercopa, that the Barça surpassed 'in extremis'. With the ex of the Lyon, the picture culé has a new 'safe' to annotate from the eleven metres, in addition to Leo Messi, to the one who anybody will be able to remove him the leadership.
Memphis, to fault of the registration
Although Depay already debuted in a friendly party with the Barça, the club has not achieved to inscribe him in his staff of face to the season 2021-2022, the same case that the rest of signings in the summer (Agüero, Emerson and Eric García) in addition to the situation of Leo Messi. However, it is not an appearance that concerns to the forward of 27 years. In fact, it was questioned in this regard in his presentation and said that "it does not concern me for nothing, first am centred in the game, and afterwards the president already has commented that are looking for creative formulas. I am safe that the president and the board will occupy of them and with the turn of the fans to the stadium, sure that it will be different".
