Memphis Depay Equals Messi’s Goal Contributions In 2021
Lionel Messi has scored 40 goals and recorded 14 assists for club and country in 2021 – that’s 54 goal involvements for the Argentine legend this year.
Interestingly, with his 2 goals for the Netherlands in their 2-2 draw against Montenegro, Memphis Depay now has 54 goal contributions in 2021 – after scoring 30 times for club and country this year.
Memphis has scored an impressive 16 goals for Holland in 2021 alone.
The 27-year-old has also risen to become Barcelona’s focal point in the attack since Messi’s departure, with 6 goals and 2 assists this season for the Blaugrana.
Perhaps we should be talking about Memphis for the Ballon d’Or. Sadly, he wasn’t even shortlisted among the 30-man contenders.
