Barcelona midfielder Frenkie de Jong has been talking about life at his new club and how he and the team can improve going forward.
The Dutch international has become a regular since signing from Ajax and says that while he is happy he thinks the team can play better football.
“My versatility is an advantage, as the coach says. I now mainly play left in midfield, also because Arthur is injured. These first months I am especially happy that I play a lot and that I am in midfield.
”From time to time I have shown my qualities, but in general everything can be a lot better. I am not as dominant as at Ajax. In this position I have to score more goals and give assists. That requires some adjustment and therefore time.
“Everything at Barca is really great and I realise that. As a team we aren’t playing badly, but we have to do better.
“Every now and then we are a bit too unsure on the ball. Sometimes our football is very beautiful, and then a game later you ask yourself where that good form and good feeling has gone.”
