Frenkie De Jong position has been questioned by Ronald Koeman.
Netherland’s boss Koeman is not convinced with the position de jong is playing with Barcelona.
Ronald koeman questioned that de jong is not playing in the ideal position that he used to play with ajax or netherland national team.
A 75 million agreement with ajax in summer transfer window allowed de jong to play for the club which he admires a lot since childhood.
With 75 million tag,big things are expected in the midfield alongside with sergio busquests and ivan rakitic.
Koeman who is working with him in his national team,believes the approach,idea and the position is wrong with the top potential player(Frankie de jong).
Koeman told marca“It’s important that he’s playing games, even if they might not be in his preferred position.
“With the national team, he players deeper but we play with two holding midfielders and Barcelona only play with one and two central midfielders, or sometimes with four central midfielders.
“The position he is playing now is different to the national team and Ajax.
“He’s learning to play further forward like this, it’s not all bad, but it’s not his best position. For me, I think he performs better playing deeper.”
De jong told sport”I don’t regret having signed for Barca, not for one second.
“I am really happy because I always wanted to play here. I am playing with players who for me are genuine legends. I am enjoying myself and I am learning a lot, too. I am at the best club in the world. living in a wonderful city with great weather.
“I always wanted to play for Barca.
“I don’t know what will happen in the future, but I am happy here and there’s no step forward from Barca. There’s no better level.”
