Memphis Depay played for Manchester United’s U21s tonight against Norwich and was enjoying himself enough to pull off this outrageous trick.
The Dutch winger left a defender for dead by sending it through his legs with a backheel flick before sprinting onto the ball behind him.
Here’s a video:
That’s the style of play which Memphis wants to do – he’s an expressive, creative player but it hasn’t worked out for him just yet at Man United.
However, a confidence boosting game for United’s U21s will only do him good and maybe we’ll see him back in action on Saturday against Sunderland.
We’ll have a short report on his overall performance later this evening.
