Memphis: ‘Do you think Luis Suรกrez would have been so successful that way? ‘

The brand new FC Barcelona acquisition Memphis Depay doesn‘t mind that he is often seen as a ‘rebellious‘ player in football. The 27-year-old Dutchman thinks his appearance can work in his favor.
Memphis has only been a player of Barcelona for five days, but logically has been in the spotlight in Spain for much longer. He tells SPORT that he is often seen as a ‘
rebel‘ in Catalonia in Catalonia in particular, and in football in general. โ€œI don’t think the word ‘rebel’ always needs to be negative. Behaving like a rebel on the field can lead to positive things. Do you think Luis Suรกrez would have been so successful when he had always behaved like a sweet boy?โ€
Memphis honestly admits that he occasionally exhibits different behavior compared to other football players. โ€œThat‘s often seen as rebellious, but I don’t mind that. Maybe it‘s my way of doing it, but when people get to know me they soon know that I’m a sweet boy. If I‘m seen like that, it’s only true. People always build a relationship with me and love me or don‘t love me. It’s what it is.โ€
