The Barcelona superstar had an estranged relationship with his father which even influenced his decision of choosing to represent the Netherlands ahead of Ghana.

Memphis reconciles with his biological father

Memphis Depay says he is 'now cool' with his father following years of not being on good terms after his Ghanaian dad abandoned him at a young age.

The Barcelona star grew up without a father figure at home, making it difficult for him at the early stages of his life on the streets of Moordrecht, Netherlands.

In a video posted on social media, the 28-year-old revealed that he has forgiven his father and they are 'now cool'.

Memphis explains the reason why he turned down a chance to represent Ghana

Earlier, Sports Brief reported that Memphis Depay turned down an approach by the Ghana Football Association to have him named in the Black Stars squad due to his father.

The Barcelona attacker was born to a Ghanaian father and a Dutch mother, thus the 28-year-old was eligible to play for the Black Stars.

But Depay, who has Ghanaian dual citizenship, Ghana and the Netherlands, chose to represent the European powerhouse, the country of his birth.
