Lyon coach Genesio: Memphis Depay just needs time

Olympique Lyon coach Bruno Genesio says he's happy with the progress of Memphis Depay.

The Dutchman has battled for form since his January arrival from Manchester United.

"We have to be able to use him a lot, of course, Memphis," said Génésio. "But he has not played at Manchester United for a long time so he lacks rhythm.

"He will also have to adapt to the workings of the team. It is a pity that he can't play against AZ, his replacement will not be easy to choose."

Memphis is Cup-tied from tonight's Europa League clash with AZ.
