Frenkie De Jong’s individual highlights of his Barcelona debut prove his quality, as the player gave an impressive performance against Chelsea.
Barcelona’s new star signing Frenkie De Jong from Ajax impressed everyone on his debut for Barcelona, as the Dutch International faced Chelsea yesterday.
The 22-year-old superstar came onto the pitch as a half-time substitute, and was able to control midfield as he acquired 100% pass accuracy in this pre-season match.
This stat certainly show that De Jong has all the right traits to be a success in Barcelona. Considering Barcelona have invested massively for the former Ajax player, they probably expect such performances by him.
Twitter user @FrenkieStats has uploaded De Jong’s individual highlights accompanied with the following words: “Frenkie makes his debut for FC Barcelona, and he looked like he was the only player who knew what he was doing in the second half. A brilliant midfielder, hopefully he starts for all of our games this season.”
Frenkie De Jong’s highlights
Despite having an impressive debut, Barcelona lost the match to Chelsea by 2-1. Barcelona failed to out-beat even once, as Chelsea dominated the scoreline throughout the game.
The Blues acquired a significant 1-0 lead in the first half, and managed to extend it further after banging in another goal in the final phase of the game.
Although, Ivan Rakitic’s stunner in the end finally gave a consolation goal to the Blaugranas, but it since it is only a pre-season game, the relevance of the outcome remains irrelevant.
Since, on the positive note, it is showing that one of the mega-signings by Barcelona this summer has started working according to the plans. On the other hand, Antoine Griezmann with all his quality is expected to meet his standards in the upcoming games.
It is no doubt that Barcelona have signed De Jong considering the long term vision for him the club hold. Thus, it seems that the young Dutch International is set o make a mark in his new team.
