Fuming Lyon coach Garcia fires warning at Koeman over public Barcelona Depay push

Lyon coach Rudi Garcia is fed-up with Barcelona boss Ronald Koeman openly discussing Memphis Depay, who captains Les Gones and will be a free agent next summer.

From January 1, Depay will be in a position to negotiate a pre-contract agreement with other clubs, and the continued rumours with Barcelona have clearly irked the Lyon boss.

"Remind me to trip Ronald Koeman up [the next time I see him]," Garcia said during Friday's pre-match press conference.

"Now is not the time. We will have an opportunity to do it, don't worry.

"My 18cm studs are always in my boots and I'll put on my good boots at the right time."
