Frenkie de Jong is amazing everyone at this start of the season. The Dutchman has adapted quickly and is already one of LaLiga's best media. In fact, he is the second player who best passes the ball of the entire competition
Frenkie Of Jong has arrived to the FC Barcelona as only they do it the big stars. The Dutch only carries some months in the group barcelonista, but already is one of the most important footballers of the eleven Barcelona. It has won quickly the affection and the respect of the staff, as well as the confidence of Ernesto Valverde that has given sideways to Ivan Rakitic by him.
His performance, as it could not be of another way, is to the height of the expectations. It has gone of less to more, but already carries some weeks in which it is playing to very high level. Still it has to soltarse a bit more to arrive to the level showed in the Ajax, but is only question of time that achieve it.
For the moment, without being his best version, the ex ajacied already is one of the best midfield players of LaLiga. And they do not say it the feelings, say it the data and numbers that carries up to now the mediocentro. For the moment, in what it goes of competition only there is a player that has better percentage that he in the pass. It treats of Toni Kroos, that carries 93,1%, when having completed with tarpaulin 502 of 539 passes tried.
Of Jong, therefore, finds just underneath of the that has been one of the best midfield players of LaLiga and of the Champions these last years. The Barcelona carries 92,9%, practically the same that the German, with 434 of 467 passes. They are numbers absolutely brutal taking into account that the Dutch is used to to risk in many of his deliveries to try break lines of pressure.
If they take into account the total of passes, the international 'orange' low until the eighth position. Gerard Hammered and Clément Lenglet, that besides is the third with better effectiveness of LaLiga, lead this section. Both are central, with what is evident that have less merit that the Dutch, since many of his passes are of security.
In Champions also is of the best
Although it does not have some so spectacular numbers, his statistics in League of Champions also are incredible. The mediocentro has given well 161 of 176 passes in Europe, with an effectiveness of 91,4%. Only Arthur Melo (92,1%), that also is shining this course, and the footballers of the Leverkusen, Wendell (91,6%), Bender (95,8%) and Tah (92,1%), surpass him. The three of the Bayer, clear is, play in defence, with what do not assume so many risks.
