The 23 year old midfield player retained to be the core of the new Barca team says, “it is a very strange time to be a Barcelona player”.
Barcelona midfielder, Frank De Jong, has lamented the current situation of the Catalonian giants saying the club has been in a terrible chaos since Bayern Munich slammed it 8-2 in European Champions league.
De Jong said the biggest shocker perhaps is the transfer request handed to the club by the ace attacker, Lionel Messi after the club put all its players except four on sale at the transfer market.
He insisted that series of unfortunate events have been happening in Barcelona as Manager Quique Setién was sacked and replaced by Ronald Koeman, most of the playing squad have been put up for sale and there have been calls for president Josep Maria Bartomeu to resign.
De Jong said in an interview that with all these series of events, it is a very strange time to be a Barcelona player.
“Currently it’s a mess in Barcelona, so many strange things are happening. It’s chaos,” the midfielder confessed.
He said further that he has not spoken to Lionel Messi about it but it would be a big blow to Barcelona if he eventually has to leave the club.
Unlike many other Barcelona players, De Jong has been branded untouchable in the squad. New Barcelona manager, Ronald Koeman is eager to use the 23-year-old as the core of his midfield like he did with the Netherlands national team.
