It is normal that some players when they finish their career in the club of their lives, decide to jump onto the field to take a last lap around the stadium that saw them triumph, accompanied by their relatives. Then Memphis Depay He wanted to anticipate future events – in the style of the prophecy predicted by the Dutchman's grandfather when he gave him a Barcelona shirt on his fifth birthday, assuring him that “one day you will play for this club” – and as soon as the presentation ceremony was over, the striker began to walk around the stadium, walking in a leisurely manner, and accompanied by the head of security and a person in charge of protocol.
It seemed obvious that Memphis was enjoying the moment and she wanted to do it almost alone, without the presence of her family and friends, who waited patiently for her at the entrance to the dressing room. Joan Laporta also witnessed this strange ritual, which marks the strong personality of the Dutch forward, who was highlighted on several occasions by the Blaugrana president during the presentation.
It took Memphis almost ten minutes to go around the entire field. Afterwards, he took some photos with his family and friends, who were patiently waiting for him, and then left the Camp Nou, accompanied by members of the club's security.
There is no doubt that gestures like this show that Memphis is a special player, someone who will 'hook' very soon with the Blaugrana fans. The topic of all the presentations, “I have fulfilled a dream that I had since I was little”, in his case seems to fit quite well with reality.
