Frenkie De Jong’s former teammate Nicolas Tagliafico believes the Dutchman will succeed at Barcelona.
De jong’s first season at Barcelona did not go as smoothly as expected. As the player himself has acknowledged in his public speeches, he was still far from giving his true potential. His former teammates Nicolas Tagliafico has a similar view.
Speaking to Calciomercato.com, the Argentine international said that “At Barcelona, they have not yet seen the best version of Frenkie”, but he does not doubt that “they will see it”.
“He is the ideal son-in-law, he is still not good enough at Barcelona, he plays the ball from here to there, he must do much better.”
“It is an exaggeration in the media, because he did not play so well this year,” he added, although he also criticized that Barca did not make him play.”
“At Ajax, everyone was looking for him, he was the center of the game, while at Barca it is not like that, that is a big difference.”
