Few things or any can him recriminar to a Frenkie of Jong that in this 2021 has 'exploded' his best version, signing a season in which it turned into the compass that never fails, so much for the FC Barcelona as for his selection, Low Countries. The midfield player has been one of the players more determinants of Europe in this season and, after so many parties, leaves to some deserved holidays before the Barcelona pre-season.

Although it is true is an unexpected farewell for the Dutch, can be very satisfied by all what has reached in the last months. And it is that from the beginning of this year has showed his best football, surpassing his version in the Ajax that enamoró to half continent. No longer only it created from the medullary, but it added to the attack, arrived from second line and turned into an impossible rival to detain because it was in all the field, all the time. His figure is not debatable in the Barça and much less in Holland. This yes, justifies the confidence of his trainers in each party.

No by at all it was one of the most stood out footballers of the phase of groups. The blaugrana dressed of leader of the medullary of the 'oranje' and was the one who, in the three parties, marked the rhythm of the party, as if it treated of his own dance. Can call it metronome, compass or director of orchestra, because his paper was at all times protagónico and marked, as no, the difference for his. In Holland tested to play in occasions like mediocentro pure, more retarded that in the Barça, but did not go obstacle any.

Although it did not have so many freedoms, did 'party' every time that it could. In front of Ukraine, for example, went a player indescifrable for the rivales and, with a silent work, but effective, converted the leader of his, carrying them to win the party in two opportunities. In the following clashes was the same history, looking for dar fluidity to the game and turning into the extra lung of the Dutch with big routes to generate danger and incomodar to the opponents.

In front of Czech Republic, however, signed his greyer party in the last months and his influence was very limited. It is merit, also, of the approach of Jaroslav Silhavy, that achieved a perfect labeling for the culé that finished neutralising it after the first fifteen minutes of parties. His numbers are the best way to show that, after so much time, Of Jong removed the 'layer' and showed his more human and vulnerable version. It signed 67 interventions, 55 passes with 84% of tarpaulin and eleven losses.

The low percentage of possession of the balloon (52% to 48%) played like enemy for the midfield player, because it is a player that does wonders with the spherical and, when it does not have it, is used to to lose more easily. To this, it is necessary to add him that the expulsion of Of Ligt in the minute 55 of party limited even more his offensive participation and had to help, even more, in the defensive works. Finally, had little participation, and the Czechs finished carrying the victory intelligently.

Holidays deserved for Of Jong

The Dutch was one of the most used players by Ronald Koeman in the Barça and finishes the 'year' with figures asombrantes. With the culés contested a total of 51 parties (37 in LaLiga, 7 in Champions League, 5 in Glass of Rey and 2 in Supercopa of Spain), with a total of 4.492 minutes of game. It annotated seven so many and delivered eight assistances of goal for his mates.

To this it is necessary to add him the three parties of eliminatory for the World-wide of Catar 2022 and the four crashes of the Eurocopa. Orn total of 58 clashes to close the season in which, without place to doubts, has to be very satisfied of his exert.
