Frenkie de Jong analysed the emerging issues of FC Barcelona, and he talked about several key subjects. The dutch gave his opinion on the next challenges in Champions, the quality of Leo Messi and Ansu Fati or the adaptation of Matthijs de Ligt
Frenkie Of Jong is one of the signings crashes of the FC Barcelona 2019-20, and has not taken in showing it. The youngster did with the titularity from the first moment and given his performance will be difficult to separate him if it does not need a rest, and besides his ambition has enamoured to the fans. In an interview conceded to the 'Gazzetta dello Sport', the one of Arkel has analysed the Barcelona actuality.
And treating of a half Italian, the first question was forced. The Dutch was questioned by the Inter of Milan, and launched a clear warning on a dangerous opponent: "Conte is a big trainer. It did it very well in Chelsea and the Juventus and now is doing the same in the Inter. I think that it is fantastic. I have spoken with Of Vrij and are very happy with him. They have won the six parties of the Series To and have a solid team and organised. It will be a hard party because this year the Inter has improved a lot, will have to be ready".
"It is true that have not played our best football in several parties, especially out of house. In the Camp Nou, however, are strong. We have to win him to the Inter because we are in the most difficult group. We think that we can do it, I am sure", it commented, signalling that the aim is to improve the feelings what before, with the focus put in the Champions but also in the rest of competitions.
In this sense, underlined that the absence of Leo Messi this affecting negatively to the community, although it defended that the staff is sobradamente ready to face up to all his commitments and follow harvesting victories: It extrañamos and is normal because it is the best of the world, but even without him have sufficient qualities and ideas to impose us in the field. We are a bit less strong, but keep on being an excellent team".
"Play with Leo is easier, does all very well. When it gives you the ball, is as if had instructions attach with what have to do. What does he with the balloon is impressive but no surprising, since it has been it doing during years", described, loved by the opportunity that has to play beside one of his idols of infancy, a factor that valued when it posed abandon the Ajax does some months.
Of Jong praises to Ansu Fati and Of Ligt
As it already did weeks backwards, Of Jong went back to think on the sportive explosion of Ansu Fati, to the that praised describing as him "big professional": "I Think that Ansu is special because is 16 years old and is playing in the first team of the Barça. No a lot of people can say this. Has a lot of talent and is a big player, but what more has surprised me of him is that it is a big professional. When I were 16 years old was a normal boy, but he is already very professional".
The crack also devoted some instants to speak of a fellow and compatriot, a Matthijs of Ligt with which would have liked him coincide in the City Condal: "I have not seen it all the parties and can not analyse it everything. I saw him against the Fiorentina and the Athletic and think that is playing well. It has had a good beginning, still is very young and already is like a star in the Juventus. Of course that it would like me have played with him in the Barça, but went his decision".
