.Style of Play.

Early in his career, a PSV coach noted Depay as “very angry”, and he now uses a life coach to aid his mentality. In April 2015, The Daily Telegraph described Depay as “a fearsome striker of the ball with his right-foot but is usually used an as inverted left winger who cuts onto his right foot. A pacey and tricky player, his direct running makes him a difficult opponent for defenders”. However, they criticised him as “a ball-hog”, pointing out his high rate of shots in comparison to a low rate of assists. Depay is also known for his free-kick ability. During the 2014–15 season, he was statistically the best set-piece taker in the whole of Europe, as he scored 7 times in 33 attempts, the most in all European leagues and the second-best accuracy.

Former Dutch international and now former Everton manager Ronald Koeman regards Depay as “a great talent”, but says that he must continue his personal development due to the physicality and mental strength needed in the Premier League. Former Wigan Athletic and Portsmouth defender Arjan de Zeeuw stated about Depay, “People regard him as a little bit arrogant, a little bit cocky, but I think he is a very good player, a very promising player, a very strong, very quick player and he’s got some skill.”

Depay has been compared to former United player Cristiano Ronaldo and fellow international Arjen Robben. Thijs Slegers says about the comparisons, “Memphis is a little bit like Cristiano; they have similar qualities, although there are of course areas where Memphis is inferior. However, his determination to be the best is where I see the real similarity with Cristiano.” Like Ronaldo, Depay combines technical expertise with pure physical strength.

.Football Career | Youth to National.

Depay was a member of the Netherlands under-17 team which won the 2011 European Championship in Serbia. In the final against Germany in Novi Sad, he scored the goal which put the Netherlands ahead as they came from behind to defeat their rivals 5–2.

Born in Moordrecht, Depay impressed football scouts from Sparta Rotterdam at the age of eight where he dazzled on the fields of his boyhood club vv Moordrecht showing his football skills. It took only three seasons before scouts from Sparta snatched Depay from his local club. Club chairman Ton Redegeld said, “Memphis was as a young player already complete. He was two-footed and strong. If we won 7–0, he scored five times and would assist two times”. When he turned 12, Depay caught the eye of clubs such as Ajax, PSV Eindhoven and Feyenoord. His grandfather, despite being an Ajax fan himself, advised Depay to move to PSV.
