Barcelona star Memphis Depay has revealed that he has no regrets moving to Barcelona despite the Spanish giant’s difficulties both on and off the pitch. The Dutch international also added that the club is confident of turning things around and reiterated that it is only a matter of time.
Memphis Depay joined Barcelona from Lyon on a free transfer in the summer and with him has fulfilled his lifelong dream of playing for the Spanish giants according to his grandmother, but things have not gone according to plan. The Dutch attacker revitalized his career with France’s Olympique de Lyon after his failed spell at Manchester United and was the talisman of the French team. Not only that, he scored 76 goals and provided 55 assists in 178 appearances across all competitions.
But the move to Barcelona has not gone as planned for Depay, as the responsibility of leading the attack now rests on his shoulders following the shocking departure of Lionel Messi and Antoine Griezmann from the Camp Nou. The Dutch international has started brilliantly by scoring three goals and providing an assist in nine appearances in all competitions, but it has not been enough to turn the fortunes of the Spanish club.
Barcelona have won just once in their last six games, with results putting them ninth in the La Liga standings and last in their Champions League after suffering two defeats. However, despite that, Memphis reiterated that the Catalan club would change its form and lashed out at the reporter who asked if he regretted moving to the Spanish giants.
“How can you ask that? It’s Barcelona. I don’t think you understand how great this club is and what it means for a player if you move to a club like this. I would never regret it. Despite the results, I am very happy. at the club. It’s been a difficult time [for the team]. I don’t want to talk about it too much, but people are acting like the season is already over. There are so many games to play, ”Depay told ESPN Holland.
“Everything is still open. But as a player you feel responsible and you take responsibility. You care. Every player takes responsibility at Barça. Everyone is panicking and for a club like Barcelona it is a new situation. They are used to it. win everything with beautiful football. It’s a new situation, but I’m not worried. I’m sure we’re going to change things, “he added.
