VIDEO: Memphis Depay Celebrates Lyon's Tense Europa League Quarter Final Win in Style

Tom Power

​Memphis Depay is clearly loving life in Lyon after his January transfer to the Ligue 1 club from Manchester United.

The forward has been in red hot form for his new club over the past three months but, unfortunately, has been unable to sample Lyon's run to the Europa League semi-finals after being cup tied for featuring for United in the competition this term.

That didn't stop the Dutch international from watching Les Gones secure their last-four place after a riveting 7-6 penalty shootout victory over Besiktas on Thursday though and, if a video published to his personal Instagram account is anything to go by, Depay revelled in the celebrations like any other Lyon fan did.

Celebrating alongside the club's loyal fanbase is one sure way to make them love Depay even more, and the relief and ecstasy of seeing the French outfit progress to the next round of the tournament was evidently music to the 23-year-old's ears.

A possible final reunion with his former club is now on the cards for Depay after the Red Devils also progressed to the last four and, providing Lyon and United navigate tricky ties against Ajax and Celta Vigo respectively, Depay will be relishing getting one over his former side.
