It has been a year since De Jong committed to Barcelona. Since then, the Dutchman has lived a hectic first season that has coincided with the first cessation of a coach at the Blaugrana club for 17 years. A circumstance that the midfielder considers negative in an interview in the newspaper Sport. “Normally when you change your coach, it’s not a good sign. I think we could play better, but we weren’t doing so badly either. We are first in the League, we are in the eighth of the Champions League and we qualify in the Copa del Rey, although it is clear that we do not play as we wanted against Ibiza. We did well with Valverde and I hope we can continue doing well with Setién. “, said. Asked about his performance and his adaptation De Jong says he is very comfortable in Barcelona, but acknowledges that he could do better than he has done so far: “I am very happy because I play a lot, I hope I can continue like this all season. But I hope to improve. I’m playing well so far, but I think I can do much better. I would wear a six. At the moment, a six or a six and a half. I have played many minutes and I have played more or less well, I am happy, but I know that my performance can be much better. “Throughout the interview, De Jong acknowledges that “Riqui Puig is very talented and we could play together”, explain what “Busquets is the one who has helped me the most” and explains that people ask “the Champions when he walks through the city”.
