Amid the ongoing coronavirus crisis, the Lyon ace had an eventful day in lockdown as he shared pictures of himself cuddling up to an exotic creature on his Instagram.
The outbreak of the virus has resulted in the suspension of football across Europe, including France’s Ligue 1 where Depay plays.
While many have been spending their time at home watching the popular Netflix show, Tiger King, Depay decided to bring a real big cat into his own home. He shared elaborate pictures of himself with a liger, a hybrid between a tiger and a lion, on Instagram.
Depay, who has revived his career at Lyon after a difficult period at Manchester United, has been linked with a potential move back to England. However, a knee injury he suffered in December has cast doubt over his availability for Euro 2020 and any potential transfer.
Lyon is eager to secure their captain’s future with a long-term contract. The true crime series, Tiger King, has captivated audiences worldwide with its intriguing story about Joe Exotic, a wildcat enthusiast.
The show has become a topic of conversation due to its numerous twists and turns.
