Video: Two Dutch Internationals Wijnaldum, Memphis Depay visits young Ghanaian boxers


Two Dutch internationals Memphis Depay and Georginio Wijnaldum paid a visit to young Ghanaian boxers as part of their visit to the country.

The former FC Barcelona and former Liverpool players are currently in Ghana and have been enjoying boxing in the country.

The two footballers arrived in Ghana for the holidays and visited a gym in the capital to connect with some of the aspiring boxers.

In videos that have gone viral on social media, the pair can be seen fraternizing with kid boxers before making a donation towards the renovation of the gym.

Depay was born to a Ghanaian father and a Dutch mother in the city of Moordrecht. His breakthrough came with PSV Eindhoven, before securing a dream move to Manchester United and currently at Atletico Madrid.

He may not have played for Ghana but Depay holds strong ties to the West African country and often visits to fraternise with his family here.

Wijnaldum also used to have a Ghanaian stepfather but currently plays for the Netherlands. He was six years old when his parents got divorced.


He’s a Premier League and Champions League winner with Liverpool, having also previously played for Feyenoord and PSV.
