One of the recent signings of the FC Barcelona, Frenkie de Jong, is impatient for playing his first Clásico and feels with the necessary confidence to make a great performance in the Camp Nou
Frenkie Of Jong will be, beside Antoine Griezmann, one of the debutantes in the Classical this Wednesday in the Camp Nou. The young Dutch midfield player has showed a big adaptation to the style of game culé since it landed, and has the illusion to play a good party in front of the eternal rival. The past season, with the Ajax of Amsterdam, already humiliated to the Real Madrid with a surprising 1-4 in Santiago Bernabéu.
"It was a very special party for us. In fact, it would say that the one of Santiago Bernabéu was the best that play. It was a surprise for all the people that was looking the party. The 1-4 in his stadium, deleting them and doing a good football... Have a very good memory of that clash", remembers the one of Arkel, that has the illusion to shine and carry the three points.
"All the world knows the important that is Messi for us. No longer it surprises if in a party marks three goals"
"The one of the year happened with the Ajax was a very special party, but now is another party and am in another team, so it will be different. I am very thrilled, will be my first Classical. All the other have gone on down them television and the one who more have enjoyed was the one of the 5-0 in the Camp Nou", signals with a smile, rememorando the famous 5-0 against the Madrid of Mourinho in 2010.
"It is equal in which date contest : play against the Real Madrid always is special. Besides, my family will come to see it. Sure that it will breathe a spectacular environment", warns the Dutch, conscious of the dangerousness of the rival. "They will joint on the lawn two of the best teams of the world. We will try to dominate the party, as we always do. I do not know as they will pose it they, but we will do it of the same way that in any another: having the possession, creating a lot of occasions and doing enjoy to the Barcelona fans. LaLiga Is very equalised and think that this is well because there will be more tension", ensures the '21' of the FC Barcelona.
Frenkie Of Jong trusts that the Camp Nou keep on being a fortín for the Barcelona this season. "Play in the Camp Nou helps us a lot. The rivals also notice it, know that it is the biggest stadium of Europe. This season, especially, are going us well the parties like venues, and ojalá follow winning split here and marking a lot of goals to do enjoy to our fans".
"I have followed all the Classical by television and the one who more have enjoyed was the one of the 5-0 in the Camp Nou"
And the young midfield player trusts the potential of Leo Messi and Luis Suárez to decant the scales. "All the world knows the important that is Messi for us. No longer it surprises if in a party marks three goals. It is much better that the rest. Any team that confronts to Messi always is more nervous, I also would be it. Luis Suárez is doing an incredible season and is annotating some wonderful goals. The year happened against the Real Madrid already achieved a hat-trick and ojalá go back it to do this season", expresses.
The FC Barcelona, besides, arrives with confidence after the last victories harvested in front of Borussia Dortmund and Athletic of Madrid, independently of the tie in front of the Real Sociedad in Anoeta. "They are triumphs that do us grow like team because usually they are very complicated. You take confidence when you win them and, even more, if the team plays well. I think that we can play better but the team is evolving and are playing better each party".
Frenkie Feels as home
Of Jong, that recognises that LaLiga is more competitive and hard that the Eredivisie, feels as home in Barcelona and has adapted to all the levels. "At the beginning always there is a period of adaptation, but in these first months in the Barça have felt me with more confidence and more comfortable. All have helped me a lot, even the people of the street: I have felt me very welcome from the first moment. The city already knew it, because it had come on holiday. The mates have recommended me places to go to visit or to eat. I seat me as home".
