Dutch national team striker Memphis Depay who bears a Ghanaian heritage has been spending his self isolation with a liger.
The Lyon forward is sharing his house with a liger, which is the offspring of a male lion and a female tiger.
“What happens when a liger entertains himself with a lion?” Depay wrote on Instagram, where he posted a picture of himself with the animal.
Depay doesn’t seem to have taken into account warnings made in the past by Mike Tyson, who had a tiger as a pet.
“You can’t believe what they can do to human flesh – I had no idea,” Tyson said.
“I was foolish then, there is no way you’re going to domesticate these cats 100 percent, there’s no way that’s going to happen.
“They kill you by accident, they don’t even mean to kill you, they do it by accident.”They’re too strong.”
Depay was born to a Ghanaian father and a Dutch mother but opted to represent the European nation.
The former Manchester United striker has been visiting Ghana during the off-season and has expressed his desire to play for Real Madrid one day.
