Memphis Depay misses Netherlands training with injury

by Sam Peoples

Voetbal International have confirmed Memphis Depay missed Netherlands training yesterday with a slight foot injury but is expected to return in time for Friday’s game against Latvia.

Depay was struck by another foot during Netherlands’ dramatic 4-3 defeat at the hands of USA last Friday and Guus Hiddink took the smart idea not to risk him in training.

If there is one thing sure to concern Man United fans when it comes to Depay, it would be any mention of the word ‘injury’.

Last season, United had 38 separate injury incidents across the whole season and it made it almost impossible for Louis van Gaal‘s side to pick up any sort of momentum. It was no coincidence that United’s best form came at a time when Van Gaal was able to put out a consistent starting XI.

As for Depay, hopefully his injury is nothing more than some impact bruising after suffering a knock.

It might be the off season so there is plenty of time for players to recover ahead of the Premier League but they need to keep playing to stay fit.

Injuries already? Welcome to Manchester United, Depay.
