Mourinho will regret Netherlands Depay proves him wrong
Mourinho will regret Netherlands Depay proves him wrong. The Netherlands defeated France 2-0 at home, the Orange Legion not only ended France’s unbeaten record of 17 months of official competition, but also ended the 10-year dream win against the French. On that night, Dutch striker Depay once again became the protagonist. His offensive frenzy kept the French team’s defense line under pressure and scored a penalty kick at the end of the game to the victory. Compared with Depay’s youthful vitality and outstanding performance, the French team’s many superstars are bleak.
On this match, Koeman’s set up a 4-2-3-1 formation, Depay as the only striker. At the beginning of the game, Depay break the French team’s defense from the side, giving the world champion a lesson.
Depay’s running position is quite erratic, which makes the Frenchman extremely difficult to defend him. Even if the world champion is steadfast in defending the tactics, Depay can still afford to shoot. After Wijnaldum broke the deadlock, the French team made a desperate attempt to create an equaliser, which gave Depay more space and opportunities to display his talents. He made trouble for the French team several times.
From the data point of view, Depay’s performance is also quite perfect. He have 5 shots on target and also completed 2 breakthroughs, completing the task of attacking job for the Netherlands. In addition, Depay sent the team’s top six threat passes for the team, which is three times the rank of the second-ranked Babel. In the face of the world champion France team, Depay looks more like a world champion. In the post-match score from whoscored bolaking website, Depay won the best of the game with a rating of 8.5.
Manchester United will miss Depay now
I have to admit that Depay has now completed self-sublimation in Lyon, especially last season, the Dutch played 54 times on behalf of the French Ligue, scored 22 goals and assisted 16 times, the performance is very eye-catching. In 2018, Depay in 52 games representing Lyon and the Netherlands, he scored 23 goals and assisted 18 times and directly participated in 41 goals. In the previous European national leagues with France and Germany, Depay has played an outstanding role. Under his leadership, the tulip is now on the rise, and the Lyon striker has become a key player.
Depay’s outstanding performance is in stark contrast to his previous downturn in Manchester United. After Van Gaal left, Depay’s performance was criticized. He rarely scored on matches. After Mourinho took over the Red Devils coach, Depay’s situation became even worse. He only started once in half a season, and had to seek to leave the team when the winter window. The Red Devils career has finally come to an end.
