Lyon boss Rudi Garcia has fired a hands-off warning to Barcelona manager Ronald Koeman over Memphis Depay.
With La Blaugrana wanting to strengthen their attack after Luis Suarez‘s departure, Depay continues to be linked with a switch to Barca after coming close to a transfer in the most recent window.
Koeman – who dealt with Depay while in charge of the Netherlands – has honestly discussed his affection for the 26-year-old, however Garcia has provided some strong words after being left not impressed with Koeman talking up the Gones captain.
Speaking with press reporters ahead of Lyon’s game with Angers on Sunday, Garcia stated: “Advise me to journey Ronald Koeman up [the next time I see him].
“Now is not the time. We will have an opportunity to do it, don’t worry. My 18cm studs are always in my boots and I’ll put on my good boots at the right time.”
Depay, who is now in the final year of his contract at Lyon, has made a respected start to procedures with 5 goals and 3 assists to show from 10 Ligue 1 matches this term.
