You already knew he could play, but did you know he could rap?

This isn't the first time that Memphis Depay has publically touched the mic but, it is the first time that he raps have been in English, helping his celebratory video go viral... as promised by himself within the lyrics!

With a glitzy video shot in Paris, Eiffel Tower behind him, the Lyon and Netherlands winger drops football-related lyrics as he drops some quotable bars about his attitude on and off the pitch. Being shared all over the world right now, the video was made to mark his Instagram account reaching 5 million followers, but you can expect that to grow further following this stunt.

People will often talk about Depay's off-the-pitch antics, especially following this move, but whilst he's in a rich vein of form, it's hard to talk down on this footballer-slash-rapper. Be sure to read our interview with Memphis and Winne is the latest issue of Life After Football.
