it is speaking A lot of Frenkie of Jongfrom his performance in the Classical against the Real Madrid. The midfield player went back to be toneless a day more and confirmed the bad feelings that left in Naples. The Dutch does not find in this new system of Quique Setién with four means and left it patent in the Bernabéu. Ronald Koeman or Louis go Gaal thought on his performance and his new position does some days and now arrives the turn of Ruud Gullit.

The one who went Balloon of Gold in 1987 loaded against the performance of his compatriot by enésima time. The ex of the Milan insisted in that it keeps on being the ideal son-in-law, something that has repeated in infinity of occasions, but thinks that the one of Arkel has to improve a lot. "It keeps on being the ideal son-in-law, but still is not the sufficiently good", affirmed the Dutch.

It is not the first time that the legendary footballer says something like this of the Barcelona, since it does a time signalled something similar in another interview. Gullit Is being very hard with him because as all those that know him, knows of what is able. "It comes to look for a ball, does a finta. Afterwards it strikes to left or right, does not happen at all more. In reality only I say this because I know that it can do it better. Frenkie Has to play better", ensured does thing of a month.

The one of Amsterdam, on the contrary that did for example Koeman, has not had never in account that Of Jong is playing in a position that is new for him. In the Ajax, the youngster shined of mediocentro and also played of head office in some parties. Where never saw him was of interior escorado to band, that is as it is playing now. Up to now it is lost in this place and sees him shy and very descolocado in a lot of occasions.

Lose this timidity has to be the principle to go out of this pothole of game, but seems complicated that it can play to his real level if they do not put him in his place. The Dutch enjoys and does to enjoy like organiser, no like driver, that is what is asking him right now Quique Setién. The one of Arkel needs to go in in contact with the ball in the start of the played from backwards, since being in a zone of the most advanced field loses presence.

Of Jong needs to have metres by in front

Few mediocentros have the ease that has the international 'orange' to beat lines of pressure with a pass and, especially, in driving. This quality is definitely the one who more prejudiced sees if it does not play in the creation, since from so up loses surprise and metres by in front to run and leave rivals backwards. The Dutch needs spaces to be he same and feel protagonist. For the moment, Setién has denied them to him, but if it does not improve his current performance like interior, the Cantabrian could have to replanteárselo.
