MEMPHIS Depay dons outlandish gold jacket at French football awards as winger continues resurgence at Lyon.
Memphis Depay has gained a reputation for his outlandish attire off the pitch, and the winger did not disappoint at the French football awards on Monday.
The Lyon star arrived at the Trophees UNFP wearing a black jacket emblazoned with garish gold material.
His designer sunglasses and strut down the red carpet bore resemblance to a Hollywood film star rather than a Ligue 1 footballer.
Depay’s social media accounts are filled with him at photoshoots or being pictured in something particularly eye-catching.
But Lyon won’t mind his latest get-up if he continues to perform the way he has since making the switch from Manchester United in January.
Compatriot Frank de Boer warned the 23-year-old to start performing on the field before attracting attention off it – and he seems to have taken heed of that advice.
The Dutchman has scored five goals in 15 league games for the French side, including a David Beckham-like strike from the halfway line against Toulouse in March – a strike which is a contender for goal of the season at the awards evening.
The United flop has begun to make waves across the Channel and many hope he can hone his off-field antics and plough them into his incredible potential on it.
