Barcelona midfielder, Frenkie de Jong has come out to admit that his first season in Spain was ordinary. He recently revealed that he is looking to reach new heights in the seasons to come.
According to him, despite the high number of matches he played years back, he was mainly an ordinary player in all of those games and he definitely tried to do better in the season that just ended.
De Jong added that he believes he can still take steps forward and keep growing at Camp Nou.
His words, “My first year at Barça was fine, I played a lot of minutes, but in my opinion, I was just an ordinary player.”
“This year I’ve been able to show myself better and played better in a lot of games, although I still think I can take steps forward and keep growing.”
“I hope we still see a better De Jong.”
On Koeman, “Obviously it’s not necessary for me to even say how happy I am that Koeman’s staying on.”
“I don’t mind where the coach puts me,”
“I prefer midfield but if I have to play at the back, I do. It’s all a question of confidence at the end of the day.”
“I notice that confidence from my coaches, my team-mates, the media… it’s a nice feeling, so I don’t mind where I play, wherever the team needs me.”
