It allows the block to go up
" It's a blow for OL, because I think Depay has been coaching this Lyon team for a few games. He is also the technical leader of this team. We saw him against Toulouse where he scored a goal all by himself and won the OL. He had scored an outstanding goal against Metz, and scored against Benfica. I also think that psychologically for the players it's always good to know that we have Memphis Depay on the team, because he is a player who, technically, is above average. It is a player who is able to keep the ball, and it also allows to go up the block and relieve this Lyon team. Without this technical leader it worries me a little bit "Says the former Bordeaux player. Now remains to know who will have the difficult task of replacing Memphis Depay Sunday night.
