Barcelona star Memphis Depay refurbished a school in Cape Coast. The Barcelona striker has refurbished the Cape Coast School for the Deaf and Blind’s washroom facility while providing pupils of the school with sporting equipment. The commissioning ceremony was attended by many community leaders and parents with wards in the school. The player has over the years, visited Ghana on numerous occasions and has engaged in Charity projects across the country.
Last week Depay touched down in Ghana just after scoring Netherlands’ winning goal against Wales in their 3-2 Nations League encounter. The player was received by dancers and local singers at the Kotoka International airport. A happy and excited Memphis was singing and dancing with the performers at the Airport’s reception.
Depay later paid a courtesy call on president Nana Addo Danquah Akuffo Addo at the Jubilee House in Accra. He presented the President with an autographed Barcelona Jersey. The Barcelona player also met with the Ashantihene in another courtesy call where he presented a Barcelona Jersey to the king. Memphis later teamed up with the leadership and players of the Ghana Premier League winners, Kumasi Ashanti Kotoko, where he admonished the players to excel next year at the CAF champions league. He also advised the Kotoko players to train hard and be diligent in their work.
Memphis Depay participated in a friendly match between Quincy Promes and Mohammed Salisu-led select side at the Madina AstroTurf Park. Depay is enjoying his vacation in the country and is expected to visit many other cities and places in the coming days. The 28-year-old has always cherished his ties to the country even though he chose to play for the Dutch National team. Many Ghanaians adore him for selfless charity works across the country and his regular visits to his father’s homeland.
