Frenkie Of Jong has to be the man that mark the difference in the centre of the field of the FC Barcelona this season. The Dutch has showed in pre-season be the midfield player more in shape and the most differential that has Ernesto Valverde in these moments. It is therefore by what will begin the course to title with almost total security.

The newspaper The Avant-garde has been with him and has done him a very interesting interview in which it has reviewed several subjects. The ex of the Ajax carries in Barcelona very little time, but is loved with the club and with the received that they have given him in the changing room. "The connection with the team is very good. The mates help me a lot. The chemical is really good in the changing room, and that is a good beginning. If I learn the fast language, can be even better for me", explained.

"If it had given me fear the competition would not have signed by the Barça"

The international 'orange' also aimed that it does not intimidate him the fierce competition that goes to have this course in the midfield. Of Jong understands it like a challenge to try be headline and give the best of himself. "It does not give me fear. It is the normal when index cards by the Barcelona, there is a lot of competition. It knew it before coming and if it had given me fear would not have signed. Here we are a series of top midfield players and only can play three. I will procure to ensure me be one of the elected", affirmed.

Of Jong also referred to the appearances of his game that still has to improve. Only it has 22 years and, taking into account his ambitious character, the normal is that it grow in all the senses.

I think that have good tuning futbolística with all the players without distinction. I recognise the designated DNA Barça because it is very clear and because has some similarity with what did in the Ajax. It likes me a lot this style, of course. I expect that we can show it to the people in each party and play beautiful. Win titles of course, but when you play in the Barça or in the Ajax need to play well, to the way of Cruyff, because it is part of the club", said.

Of Jong sees to Messi favourite in all the prizes

The ex 'ajacied' is one of the candidates to carry the prize The Best. It will compete, for example, with Leo Messi, that is probably the big favourite to win it. Of Jong undid in praises to the '10' and showed happy by his own nomination. "Sincerely, it did not expect to be here, it went a surprise. Claro that it honours me, but for me is not a big question. I think that the Balloon of Gold is bigger that the 'The Best'. Besides, Messi goes it to win, deserves it to him and any another winning me extrañaría".

"It can not compare to anybody with Messi, is of long the best"

Finally, the midfield player referred to Go Dijk, that is another of the favourites to win the Balloon of Gold and the The Best.
