Frenkie de Jong’s start to season is amazing. The Dutchman started the season where he ended. Far away is the summer of 2022 in which Barça tried to transfer him to Manchester United in order to free up a ton of wages and thus be able to meet the signing of Bernardo Silva.
Since then midfielder’s level leaves no room for doubt. A founding player of the Barça football idea, caretaker and defender of the kule style, Frenkie is more attuned than ever to the team and the city. “Barça is my dream club and I want to be here all my life” the football player pleaded a few weeks ago in an interview with the publication Newspaper.
He’s a midfield owner. Criteria and hierarchy for giving packing to the kernel. indispensable player and with many possible roles within the team.

Xavi can’t imagine his Barça without Frenkie de Jong. He considers it the cornerstone of the project. “It’s not now, last season he was outstanding. He played matches to become one of the best in the world. He has personality, he breaks lines… he is at the best level since he was at Barça because finally he plays in his position, exactly the Frankie we need,” Xavi explained after victory in Villarreal.

At Getafe, he appeared accompanied by Oriol Romeu, expanding the squad and taking advantage of the presence of the player from Uldecona to join the attack with his usual handling of the ball. In the second half, having one player less, Xavi put him in the position of a central defender in order to better pass the ball.and Frankie, as usual, complied.
Against Cadiz and knowing that Barça will need more than ever to have the ball to take over the game and be able to gather people inside, Xavi has chosen the Dutchman as a central defender. We saw him come out with the ball again and again from behind, distribute the ball and always strive to add speed to the team’s game.
in Villarreal, Frankie was there for Romeu to support the team when he suffered the most.. He commanded the reaction of the coule, and his score was 0-2 after he took advantage of a denied box to beat Jorgensen with a clean shot. First goal of the season for De Jong, who lives his best moments as a cule.

This is the second highest number of chances Frankie has created since he played for Barça. Only in the 1-2 match against Granada in 2021 did he do more (6). Numbers of an all-terrain football player.
