The Dutch midfielder of the FC Barcelona, Frenkie De Jong, made a big party in front of the Real Betis, in the victory of the picture culé by 5-2. In front of the absence of Lionel Messi at the beginning of the meeting, the ex player of the Ajax of Ámsterdam was one of the footballers called to shine and, in this occasion fulfilled with grow.

After a first season in which it expected that the steering wheel adapted to the requirements of the Catalan club, has expected of the same an upper performance to the that showed in his first zafra like culé. Although it has had his heights and his basses, seems that De Jong is finding his best version.

In front of the group of Manuel Pellegrini, the footballer of 23 years gave chair with one of his specialitys, as it is it the driving of the ball from the first metres after his area. Incidentally, De Jong improved notably his location in the field along all the meeting, what facilitated the closing of spaces and the recovery of ball by part of his team.

The key moment of Frenkie in the meeting in front of the Betis arrived when the party found empatado to a goal. In this moment, the born in the city of Arkel left in tray of silver an excellent pass Jordi Alba, the one who combined with Messi for surtir to Griezmann of the necessary assistance so that the French marked the 2-1 transitory, to the minute 49.

De Jong, adapted to the double pivote

In his principles in the FC Barcelona, while it was directed by Ernesto Valverde and, later, by Quique Setién, the one who observed the parties of the club could darse that Frenkie De Jong did not find of the all comfortable playing by in front of the mediocampista "5", where were used to to use it his technicians. Included, sometimes until it situated like a species of extreme, by what his main faculties saw lost in this position.

Afterwards of the arrival of Ronald Koeman to the Barcelona bench and, therefore, of the training of 4-2-3-1, De Jong could go back to play in a position in which it already was accustomed, since in the Ajax was used to to situate in the first line of the midfield, where was the mate of Lasse Schöne. Thanks to the implementation of the new alignment posed by Koeman, the player of 23 years can have more freedom for transitar with the balloon, surtir of passes to his mates and cover spaces, without being one hundred percent engaged with the defence, but equally contributing his grain of sand to mark when it can.
