Although it have criticised him enough, it is necessary to recognise that one of the tarpaulins of Ronald Koeman and of the implementation of an alignment for the Barcelona, that draw in her two mediocampistas central or the known double pivote, has been the remarkable mejoría in the performance of Frenkie De Jong. Especially, during the last meetings in which the culés obtained a victory, in front of the Valladolid and the Real Sociedad.

Arrived to the Barcelona discipline in 2019, De Jong was of these signings that ilusionaban with so alone imagine them, given the big masterclasses that the mediocampista Dutch gave in the Ajax of Ámsterdam. However, his adaptation was not the best from the beginning and, still today, follows expecting the best version of the young of 23 years.

De Jong suffered hard criticisms by this, given the outlay that the Barcelona did by him, situated in 75 million euros and which had not been able to be corresponded by the performances of the mediocampista. Included, it arrived him to associate with Alexander Hleb, signing fallido that happened a season in the Camp Nou, to the orders of Pep Guardiola and that, finally, left of the club with more penalty that glory, in spite of having achieved a triplete in the first-half of the year 2009.

However, the recent samples of football that has given Of Jong are quite satisfactory, since the mediocentro has achieved to show a much more remarkable performance to the that came having from his arrival to the team. This, largely, is due to the utilisation of a diagram, was 4-2-3-1 or 3-4-2-1, in which the same have a "escudero" or another mediocampista that help it to maintain a balance inside the field, was Busquets or Pjanic.

De Jong, in his natural habitat

During his go through the Ajax, De Jong had the assistance of the Danish Lasse Schöne like mate in the double pivote used by Erik have Hag, what offered him the sufficient freedom to break lines, step the rival area and, especially, exert his speciality, which is the vertical driving of the balloon. In his first season in the Barcelona, tied to the 4-3-3 used by Ernesto Valverde and by Quique Setién later, the Dutch did not find his place in thefield .

Now, under the orders of Ronald Koeman, the one who knew it already by the step of both by the selection of the Low Countries, De Jong has corresponded satisfactorily the implementation of the double pivote in the alignment of the Barcelona and has gone back to his natural habitat. With several things for improving still, but much freer and with better performances, expects that this was, finally, the season of the explosion of the talentoso mediocampista.
