Memphis Depay has already laid down a Ligue 1 challenge to Neymar

The former Man United winger has challenged Neymar to see who will score more free-kicks next season

Memphis Depay is no longer the biggest fish in Ligue 1.

Okay, so he never really was in the first place. Even so, Neymar’s arrival has got everyone looking at Ligue 1 again.

But Depay, who joined Lyon from Man United in January, is taking it all in his stride.

The 23-year-old has laid a challenge down to the incoming Brazilian, who signed for PSG in a £198million deal.

Memphis took to Instagram to challenge Neymar to an ol’ fashioned free-kick shootout.

He said: “Hey Neymar, welcome to Ligue 1. I look forward to seeing who nets the most free-kicks this season. I’m most definitely up for the challenge.”

People shouldn’t be too quick to dismiss Memphis in the head-to-head.

He did, after all, score Ligue 1’s Goal of the Year last season for his strike against Toulouse.

Nothing like a bit of healthy competition to get the season underway.
