Sad time for Memphis 

Memphis had to see and carry a lot at a young age. He had to face many of his sorrows and try to move forward. 

He was abandoned by two fathers by the time he reached adolescence. His father abandoned him and his mother when Memphis was four years old

His second father, i.e., his mother's partner, left him when he was just a teenager after he won the lottery.

He also lost his closest grandfather a few years after his father left him, which was a big shock to him. 

When his grandfather died, Memphis was broken because they had a deep bond.

At age six, he joined the youth football club vv Moordrecht and immediately wowed coaches with his lightning pace and ball skills. 

But as his football career began to take off, the condition of his house was deteriorating. 

Memphis and his mum were moved on to his mum's new partner called Dick

Suddenly, the man left them. It is rumored that the man won a million euros in the lottery. 

Then Memphis and his mum went to live with his grandfather, and their relationship became very good with Cees

Memphis used to tell his grandparents that one day he would see Memphis on TV. However, heartbreak stuck when Cees died in 2009


Cora was married to Dennis Depay. They ended their marriage in a divorce when their son Memphis was only four years old. 

After she divorced her husband, she found love again in her second partner named Dick. But unfortunately, her new partner abandoned her as well.

Schensema knew her son was special soon after his birth

Schensema, in an interview, said she saw the potentiality of her son soon after his birth. 

Recalling his childhood, she said that her son Memphis was also highly talented in gymnastics and was offered to join the Dutch Junior team, but he declined the offer because football was and is the only thing he wanted in his life. 

Not only in gymnastics, but he was also physically capable of a lot. 

When Memphis put on skates for the first time, he drove off, she remembered. 

Memphis got the African genes. He never crawled. He stood directly against a chair or a table leg, she said. 

Memphis was four months old when they were invited by the pregnancy gym, and Memphis standing at a low table, pulled the table top over, after which everything on the table clattered on the floor, turning into thousand pieces. 

She realized at that moment that her son was special and had an extreme amount of energy. 

As he grew, he started playing football, it was often difficult for him to relax, and that was the reason she came up with a fixed rhythm.

Memphis's father denied abandoning him and said it to be a lie

Memphis refused to have his father’s surname Depay on his shirt as he claimed that his father abandoned him at the age of four, for which he will never forgive. 

But his father, Dennis Depay, during an interview with The Sun, denied it and said it to be a lie. He said,

“Saying that I didn’t see him after he was four is a lie,” 

He also said it to be unbelievable and not nice and that he is his son and loves him, and he is the man to give him his first ball. 

He claimed he didn’t abandon his son and was always there for him.

He further expressed that when he saw his son on YouTube talking about him, saying he didn’t want to put his name on his back made him feel terrible. 

He concluded by saying,

I would love to be back in touch with him. I miss him so much.
