Parcel! Orange star Memphis Depay threatens EM-Aus

 - Transgaming 1

The worst fears are confirmed: Memphis Depay is threatened with an EM injury after a serious injury. The attacking player from Olympique Lyon incurred a cross in a 0-1 (0-0) win against Stade Rennes on Sunday. The club confirmed this Sunday night.

"We have to wait until we know more, but it doesn't look good for Memphis. We think it's the crossbow," coach Rudi Garcia said immediately after the game. But his hope of a less serious injury was cleared just hours later. Lyon is expected to have at least six months of downtime.

The diagnosis is a major blow to Lyon and the Netherlands. With six goals in the European Championship qualification, the 25-year-old played a key role in Orange's successful qualification for EURO 2020. Among other things, he scored in the 2: 3 loss to the German team in Amsterdam in March last year.
