Man Utd’s Memphis Depay Manages to Make FIFA 17’s Top Ten Free-Kick Takers

Man Utd’s Memphis Depay Manages to Make FIFA 17’s Top Ten Free-Kick Takers

He may not be able get into the Manchester United team – or even the squad on some occasions – but Memphis Depay is still apparently highly thought of at EA Sports, the people behind FIFA 17.

Well, highly thought of in terms of free-kicks, at least.

The Dutch midfielder joined United a year ago from PSV Eindhoven, having just scored 28 goals from the Dutch side in the Eredivise.

He cost around £25 million, but failed to live up to the fanfare under previous boss Louis van Gaal, and by the looks of things Jose Mourinho doesn’t fancy him much either as he hasn’t started a single match since the Portuguese coach arrived.

But with the world’s most popular football console game about to hit the shelves in the UK later this month, it appears Depay is about to receive a bit of a confidence boost as he’s SEVENTH in the list of the top ten set-piece takers.

Here is the list in full:

 

10. Gylfi Sigurðsson

9. Shunsuke Nakamura

8. Francesco Lodi

7. Memphis Depay

6. Lionel Messi

5. Mehmet Ekici

4. Dimitri Payet

3. Miralem Pjanić

2. Hakan Çalhanoğlu

1. Andrea Pirlo

 

What do you make of the list?
