Netherlands coach Ronald Koeman is positive about Memphis Depay’s recovery from a knee injury ahead of Euro 2020.

The Lyon star ruptured his anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) in December, putting him in doubt for the upcoming European Championship.

However, Koeman is upbeat about the 26-year-old’s recovery ahead of the tournament in June and July.

“We have regular contact. I went to him in Rome. I know about his recovery,” he told a news conference after the draw for the 2020-21 UEFA Nations League was held on Tuesday.

“It looks positive. It’s a long way for him still.”

Koeman added: “We don’t have the certainty he will make the Euros. He has a long way to go.

“Time will tell if he will be fit.”
