“I’m not kidding,” the Lyon and Holland striker claimed today, “ as long as everybody works for me on the pitch, wins tackles for me, provides me with quality passes, stands back and gives me the time and space to do what I know I can, there are really no limits to what I can achieve in the game.”
“I know I’m better than the second rate outfit I play for now. If people would just give me a chance by changing their attitudes and centering an entire world class team like Barcelona around just me for as long as it all takes to click, then I know I could really make an impact.”
“Quality assists, perfect crosses, letting me take all the penalties and free kicks, backing off when the ball comes anywhere near me and never ever asking me to track back, that’s all I ask.” “Oh and then staying away while I perform my trademark celebration lap of honour.”
“In fact, now I think about it, if a formula one team devised a car specifically for me and really took the time, spending hundreds of millions upskilling me and devoting all their R&D to my development for as long as it took, decades if necessary, I have every confidence I could become a highly successful Grand Prix driver. Maybe even the best of all time.”
Depay scored against Portugal in a titanic clash between Depay and one of the other two players who think they’re the best in the world.
