Watch: Memphis Depay Scored His First Goal For Lyon Last Night

Having signed for Lyon during the January transfer window, Memphis Depay opened his account with the French side on Wednesday evening.

When Memphis Depay initially signed for Manchester United back in 2014, fans of the Old Trafford club believed that they had signed one of the hottest prospects in European football.

In his opening few months with United, that certainly seemed to be the case as a few electrifying performances culminated in a mouth watering display against Club Brugge in the Champions League.
