Frenkie de Jong played just 45 minutes against UNAM Pumas, but what a performance it was from him! The Dutchman absolutely bossed the midfield, driving the ball forward, creating chances, and even scoring the final goal of the game.
This magisterial performance came amid reports about his potential departure from Barcelona. However, many fans don’t want to lose De Jong, especially after being reminded what a beast he can be when all the stars align.
MarcGeschwind: “Frenkie is way too good of a footballer and way too nice of a guy for the way he’s been treated and talked about this summer. Glad to see him ignoring the noise and balling out, hope it continues.”
kshitijshah23: “The thing is when it’s Frenkie’s day — HE RUNS THE ENTIRE GAME. That’s the reason why I want him here. To have more of his days.”
Founda__: “Give Frenkie De Jong whatever he wants and keep him at the club, he’s world class.”
_Xaviology: “How Can We Even Think Of Selling Frenkie De Jong?”
FCBClev10: “I really want Frenkie de Jong to stay after seeing this performance.”
At the moment, Frenkie’s future seems to be up in the air. Barca want to either offload him or significantly cut his wages. The Dutchman isn’t okay with either at the moment.
