Barcelona forward Memphis Depay has taken to social media to express his happiness at meeting Ghana President Nana Akufo-Addo.

The 28-year-old Netherlands forward visited Akufo-Addo at his Jubilee House offices in Accra, where he also got the opportunity to present to him a signed shirt of the Catalans.

The jersey had his name inscribed on the back and this was after Depay arrived in the West African country for holiday after featuring for the Netherlands in the UEFA Nations League and also helped Barcelona to a second-place finish in La Liga earlier.

Depay wrote on his Twitter, a post which was accompanied by a picture of him presenting the jersey to Akufo-Addo:

Grateful to meet the president of a country that I love so much.

Coming back home feels always amazing and Ghana is the future y’all stay tune!

Oh and you know I had to bring a jersey of the best club in the world for the mister President.


His visit to the country is not new since in 2019, Depay, who has played for PSV Eindhoven, Manchester United, and Lyon and was born to a Ghanaian father, Dennis Depay, and a Dutch mother Cora Schensema in the Netherlands in 1994, toured the country where he got the opportunity to visit schools and interacted with children.
