  • Memphis Depay was given a president-esque treatment from hundreds of youth, who had gathered to watch the Barcelona ace at the Madina Zongo Park
  • Memphis has been in Ghana for a week and has been engaged in numerous activities, including the unveiling of a newly-built toilet facility for the school of the deaf and blind in Cape Coast
  • He is expected to depart the country in the coming week ahead of FC Barcelona's pre-season tour

Dutch and FC Barcelona forward Memphis Depay received a treatment worthy of a king on the back of engaging in a community game at Madina, a suburb of Accra.

The 28-year-old's down-to-earth attitude has earned him a soft spot in the hearts of many Ghanaians, particularly the youth.

In a video posted on Twitter, sighted by Sports Brief, Memphis Depay received massive love from the youth who gathered to watch a kickabout between Memphis XI and Salisu XI at the Madina Zongo Park.

The youth in their droves hailed the former Manchester United attacker as he made his way out of the match venue.

Memphis, who was born to a Ghanaian father and a Dutch mother, has made it a point to return to the West African country every summer in the past few years to reconnect with his roots while also embarking on philanthropic works.

Since arriving in Ghana on Wednesday, June 15, Memphis has interacted with the indigenes, played football on dusty fields, and built bathrooms and toilets for the school of Cape Coast School for the Deaf and Blind.

He has also met with Ghana's President Nana Addo Dankwah Akufo-Addo and the Asantehene, King of the Asante Kingdom, Otumfour Osei Tutu II.

In a video posted on social media, Depay was excited to meet Muntari, giving him a big hug as the ex-Inter Milan star dressed up for the game.
