Frenkie de Jong was the player who traveled the most kilometers in the Champions League match that FC Barcelona drew against Borussia Dortmund in Signal Iduna
Frenkie Of Jong was one of the big bets of the FC Barcelona to reinforce his staff in the present season. The Catalan club left tied to the mediocentro Dutch the past month of January to avoid that another team carried it to him and the true is that his start of season is hopeful, evidenciando his technical quality and his serenity in the medullary.
Logically, it does hardly two months that saw the T-shirt of the FC Barcelona and still has to adapt to the style of Barcelona game and also to the new position in which it is using him Ernesto Valverde, like right interior. In the Ajax, played of mediocentro in a double pivote and now has advanced his role, by what needs time of shooting to be able to take out to relucir all his talent.
The most positive part of his process of adaptation is that Ernesto Valverde is giving him total continuity. Of Jong has played like titling in the four parties of LaLiga Santander and also in the one of Champions League against the Borussia Dortmund. Curiously, against the German team, went the footballer that more deployed in kilometres visited.
In total, the mediocentro international with the 'orange' visited 11,46 kilometres, surpassing the 10,91 of Arthur Melo, the 10,25 of Antoine Griezmann, the 9,52 of Clément Lenglet and the 9,25 of Gerard Hammered. Besides, Of Jong also turned into the second footballer that more times went in in contact with the ball, with a total of 72 interventions surpassed only by the 77 of Arthur.
The position of Of Jong
By the moment, Ernesto Valverde is testing to Frenkie of Jong so much in the position of inner as in the one of mediocentro pure by in front of the defence. In the last parties has begun playing by the right, by in front of Sergio Busquets and doing couple of interiors with Arthur. Nevertheless, in Dortmund also could him see like mediocentro.
To day of today, so much he like Arthur seem intocables in the team, and the third place is contested between Sergio Busquets and Ivan Rakitic. If the Catalan plays, the Dutch has to do it of interior. If instead it is the Croat the one who jumps to the terrain of game, the role of Of Jong delays . It will be necessary to see how develops the season.
