Barça signed Frenkie de Jong some months ago, and the dutch is confirming that he is a winning bet. Among all his qualities there is one that stands out and that the catalans have to preserve
After several years of experiments fallidos, the FC Barcelona is going back to the origins to keep his successful series, and to prepare a future that wants that it follow plagado of titles. The Catalans have encouraged in the last months for improving the staff of the first team and recover the course in the inferior categories, in addition to stepping forward to hire footballers that fit in his demanding style.
Hardly some weeks sufficed to confirm that Frenkie of Jong is a winning bet, and that if it keeps growing to this rhythm, will be legend in the Camp Nou. The Dutch has only 22 years, but aúna all the characteristics that do special to the midfield players that estilan in the City Condal. His quality in the pass, his technician, his reading of the spaces and his tactical command have turned him into reference at all more arrive, by not mentioning a physical deployment that certifies him like an authentic todoterreno.
But if there is a quality that the culés have to preserve is the atrevimiento of the recently arrived, a mix of his youth and of the distinctive stamp of the Ajax of Erik have Hag, that also has resurrected Ronald Koeman in a Holland that goes back to marvel with his football of touch, fresco and brave. Now it will have to adapt to a club in which also it prioritises the temper of the big, but of course this great condition more than subtracts.
The courage and verticality of the player of Arkel has to infect to a group to the that in occasions accuses to be lacking of spark, that that contributed Xavi or Iniesta when they were to the orders of Pep Guardiola and even of Luis Enrique. The one who still handles Leo Messi and the one who really changes the parties. The possession only is useful when it accelerates to the rival goal, and when after building a played to base of touch, touch and touch, break lines with a career or with a sending teledirigido.
This mentality of the Dutch is the one who want to Arthur and to which has to aspire the Barça, solider that in the last times but also something less offensive. They are not few those that think that this depends on the orders that arrive from the bench, but if Ernesto Valverde has decided to give the baton to the two youngsters, also has to understand that of his hand can recover part of the stray joy.
The Barça has a batch ilusionante of midfield players
Of Jong and Arthur are recent incorporations to a batch of midfield players that full of illusion to the Barça. The Masia shines with Carles Pérez and Ansu Fati and wait to Miranda or Abel Ruiz, while it looks askance the evolution of the promising Riqui Puig in the filial or Oriol Busquets that it has mudado to the Eredivisie to test his cost. Together can form the room of machines that guie to the Camp Nou in a near future.
