The head coach of the national team of the Netherlands Ronald Koeman expressed his opinion that the 22-year-old Barcelona midfielder Frankie de Jong is not in the best position.
“In the team de Jong plays deeper, and Barcelona operates with two Central Midfielders, and sometimes with four players in midfield. The position, which he now plays, different from that which he had at Ajax. Frankie learns to play further forward, not so bad, but it’s not his best position. I think he plays better deeper”, — quotes the words of Koeman Marca.
De Jong, who moved from Ajax to Barcelona last summer for € 75 million this season, took part in 37 matches for the Catalan club in all competitions, scored 2 goals and 4 assists.
