knew the Dutch International from before. Koeman coached Depay in the  Dutch national team.

The 26-year-old has scored 21 goals for the Netherlands and set the team at third place in the 2014 world cup in Russia.

He also scored twice in Lyon's 3-2 win against Lens and gained three points.

After Wednesday's win, he said:

"I'm happy here. We have a great team, I really like the president, we'll see what happens,

"The president and I know what happened in the last four seasons. Let's keep going and enjoy my presence. I might be here until the end of the season.

"Let's focus on Saturday's game, let's be happy, we have a great team."

He moved to Lyon in 2017. He had moved to Old Trafford in 2015 but managed to score only 7 goals in 53 appearances made.

In Lyon, he scored 64 goals in 155 matches and was an important factor to help the French reach semi-finals of the champions league last season.
