Download Rudi Garcia Talked About Mempohis Depay
Lyon coach Rudi Garcia, spoke in the build up to the game against Bordeaux over Memphis Depay’s situation.
Although Barca are after him, the French coach said that no Barca offer has yet to come in for the Dutch forward.
Lyon are facing Bordeaux this Friday and Rudi Garcia spoke in the build up. He tried to focus on the match, but the name of Memphis Depay was inevitably mentioned.
When asked about the striker’s situation, the French coach seemed resigned to losing him. Lyon will not be in Europe this season and he is aware that the club will not be able to keep hold of some players such as the Dutchman. Barca are interested in Depay.
“We don’t know what will happen to him. He’s fine, he played for his country. We’ll see what we can do with him this Friday. There’s no reason for him to not be in the group unless he leaves beforehand, but there has been no offer for him up to now.”
Rudi Garcia denied that there had been any kind of formal offer from Barca for the striker. The Spanish side have been thinking about this for a long time and this Friday, there was talk of including Emerson in the deal to make it cheaper.
In his press conference, the coach continued to talk about the situation of a squad who have been linked with moves away. “Aouar is back with us, we’ll have to make sure he’s ready. He should play this Fridayu. Kenny (Tete) is about to leave. Tatarusanu as well. It’s a big clear out.”
“We always start a competition trying to win it. If we had kept everyone, yes, we could’ve dreamt big as we’re only playing once a week, but now I’m not sure,” the Frenchman concluded.
