Soccer cutie Memphis Depay lands the cover of VOGUE Man Netherlands’ newest issue. See the star soccer player floss in high fashion inside…

 

 

We don’t know much when it comes to soccer (or fútbol as they call it overseas), but we know sexy. And Memphis Depay is fione.

The 25-year-old Dutch professional athlete is the high-flying, high-styling winger/forward for the France-based Olympique Lyon soccer team, with whom the top striker signed a 4.5-year contract in January 2017.

And he has accomplished quite a bit so far in his career. He played for Real Madrid, he won the Champions League, he nabbed the Golden Ball for the world’s best player, he dabbles in music, film and fashion. Oh, and he’s the ex-fiancée of Lori Harvey, Steve & Marjorie Harvey’s daughter. They called off their engagement in 2018 after dating for a long while.  But she's not the only one flourishng since the break up.

Memphis is at the top of his game. Literally. And folks are taking notice.

The Do Gooder - who is one of the best attackers in soccer - covers one of three covers for VOGUE Man Netherland’s Fall/Winter 2019 issue.

”I’m so excited to grace the cover of Vogue...the leading and top fashion magazine in the world,” Memphis wrote on Instagram. “To be aligned with such a globally celebrated brand that is at the forefront of fashion is both an honor and a blessing. Thank you to the amazing team who made this special milestone happen for me!”

 

 

He also shared behind-the-scenes shots from his spread with the caption, “Live for the moments you can’t put into words yet always dreamed about. Creating and collaborating with the amazing team from @nlvogue was such an honor! Thank you for the privilege of gracing your cover! #Blessed”

He's hot. 

 

 

Not only does Memphis kill it on the field, he's also putting in work for those facing obstacles, especially kids.

“I hope to inspire kids everywhere through my gift of soccer and let them know if they remain passionate and focused on their dreams while nurturing their individual talents they can achieve everything they set their minds and hearts to," Memphis said in a press release.

His philanthropic organization, Memphis Foundation, seeks to break the cycle of exclusion of blind and deaf youth by providing them access to sports and music through which they can be empowered and connect to their communities. His inspo behind this cause?  Each time he makes a goal, he puts his fingers in his ears to block out the cheers and points to the sky, signifying he's giving all glory to God.  He says he's "deaf and blind" to the world around him so he can best listen to his own heart and spirit.  He encourages kids facing obstacles to do the same.

He supports a school in Ghana called Cape Deaf that supports and provides over seven hundred deaf and blind children with education, sports lessons and healthy food.

"I feel a great responsibility to share my wealth with the people in the country where I have roots. Many people measure their success by the size of their bank balance and their assets, At the start of my career I also attached too much value on material things, now I understand that what truly matters and is most important is our compassion and how much we can use what we have been blessed with to give back"

 

 

Handsome and gives back? Loves it.

 

Over the summer, Memphis released a book titled, "Heart of a Lion," which will be released in the US the first quarter of 2020. Below are a few excerpts from the book:

"You don't have to be exactly the same have had a background or career similar to my own to see yourself in my book Heart of a Lion," he says. "I have already received many responses from people of all ages and nationalities, who express support or hope due to my encouraging words. The message of my book is to live in your purpose, be thankful, follow the path that God has designed for you and everything in your life will fall into place "

"I was brought up religiously," Memphis explains. "But along the way I lost the connection with God. I grew up surrounded by a lot of violence which meant I was in constant survival mood. Now I am at peace and have grown as a person, and I am mature enough to understand the opportunities my faith has allowed me to capture."

Solid.
