Frenkie De Jong has contested 67 parties between the FC Barcelona and the combined Dutch: the 5.773 minutes finished weighing, as it finished the Eurocopa almost walking
During the last minutes of the party between Holland and Czech Republic, Frenkie of Jong almost could not step more. Partly it corresponded to the state anímico of a team broken after the expulsion of Of Ligt. But also, sometime it had to attack the tiredness. The one who is usually sure, Of Jong lost balloons and was not able to recover neither cover all this space that is used to in the FC Barcelona.
This has sucedido by a reason: Frenkie closed the season with 67 parties played. At all less than a total of 5.773 minutes delivered in 4.472 with the Barça and 1.301 with the selection of Holland. "It is as if we were tired, but do not know why", expressed Of Jong to the term of the mentioned commitment. Surely if it sees these figures, have answer to his doubt.
To his 24 years, Frenkie finalises a season extenuante in which the calendar has compressed and he contested everything. With the Barça could take a step forward, exerted a brilliant season in which it stood out from the month of December, when Ronald Koeman advanced his position in the 4-3-3. Afterwards, when the technician opted by the controversial 3-4-2-1, alternating the places of free and midfield player.
However, with Holland had less leadership, as the team did not play to the rhythm of Of Jong, that besides did not have players of his profile to associate . In place of, for example, Sergio Busquets and Pedri, have been Of Roon and Wijnaldum, footballers of other characteristics. This has subtracted some brilliance to Of Jong.

It arrived the moment of a deserved rest for Of Jong, to the that suits him clean the head and, especially, rest his legs of face to the next season, because the calendar owing to the pandemia, will give no respite. They expect him four competitions to the Barça the next campaign, and the phase of classification for the World-wide of Qatar, that will splice with the course 2021-22.
