Speaking to Dutch publication Algemeen Dagblad he cited fellow Dutchmen Karim Rekik and Nathan Ake as examples of what can happen if you move abroad at a young age.“You can fall behind in just two years,” he said. “Depay has clearly come back with confidence from the World Cup. But I hope that he stays at PSV.“When I think back to my early days, when I was as young as Depay, I learned from fellow players who had children. These were the men who put me on the horse and also knocked me down when needed. Who will do that now with Depay?
