Frenkie Of Jong follows showing, day yes and day also, that the FC Barcelona did well in ensuring his signing the past month of January. Because of the big performance of the born midfield player in Arkel, if the culés expect now could have paid much more that these 75 fixed millions and 11 variables that agreed in winter.

This Thursday went back to show his enormous talent with the Selection of Holland, in the party of the semifinals of the UEFA Nations League in which the ones of the Low Countries defeated to England (3-1) in the extention. Of Jong shined in the medullary and went the authentic boss of the centre of the field, delivering the game and giving rhythm to the circulation of ball, something that likes a lot in the Camp Nou. 

In the Barça will have competition but, seeing his level, more than a 'intocable' of Ernesto Valverde has reasons to be concerned. "Each one has his place. He arrives but am convinced that it will not arrive for my place, my place is busy", said Ivan Rakitic in a recent interview with Sportive World. But, really it is he the one who has to be concerned?

In the Ajax and in Holland, Of Jong has accustomed to play like pivote, in a retarded position to help to the team to have circulation of balloon from backwards. A similar paper to the of Sergio Busquets. Nevertheless, also it is used to to go accompanied of a mediocentro more recuperador. Thus, in the group culé could advance his position for readaptar his role.

The virtues of Of Jong

No descarta that in the Camp Nou Of Jong play in the position of interior in which it can descolgarse more than if it played of mediocentro positional, to the style of Sergio Busquets. It is true that from some sectors aims to that comes to relieve to the Catalan, but his technical profile does that better lace playing with somebody that cover him the backs by behind.

Frenkie Of Jong can adapt perfectly to the position of Busquets thanks to his tactical intelligence, but if we want to see him shine to the maximum maybe his position has to be more descolgada. The Dutch has capacity of desborde and also last pass, two shots that would do him shine playing more advanced. The time will say what decide the technicians.
