De Jong: “Ansu is the Barça player who surprised me the most”

first_imgThen came the fun time. When asked who figured he would be the hardest worker right now, he pointed out to Braithwaite: “From what I see, he’s training hard. He may be the hardest working.” He said he sees “Ter Stegen writing a book on confinement.” De Jong said that the player who has surprised him the most is Ansu. “I didn’t know him when he started training with us. He has a lot of talent and a lot of quality.” And then he said the first thing he would do when the state of confinement ended: “Go to a bar … (laughs). No, seriously, see my family, my friends and go to train and play, which is the most I like it”.De Jong admitted that he was killing time by revisiting the ‘Friends’ series, he considered Bergwijn (Tottenham) the most difficult rival he had faced when playing at PSV, and congratulated himself on Nouri’s improvement. But above all, De Jong confessed that he must improve his performance: “I have played many games and that is not easy in the first year. I am satisfied with my performance, but not totally satisfied. I have played some games well and I think our The best performances were against Dortmund and Inter in the Champions League, but I have also played very bad games. “ Surrounded by memorable jerseys (Mbappe’s for his debut in the Netherlands against France; and the Nations League semifinal against England) and worse memories (one of Lucas Moura, ultimately his executioner in the Champions in the Ajax-Tottenham tie), Frenkie de Jong gave a video call interview to the official media of Barça in which good vibes prevailed. “I came before the state of alarm was decreed in Spain … Here the routine every day is the same. Breakfast, I take a little walk, I train on the treadmill … Then I play with the dog. I try to stay in shape with a work program that they pass us from the club. But it is not a normal training “, the Dutch began. De Jong was pleased that they can at least go for a little walk down the street, something that is currently prohibited in Barcelona. “The midfielder, who came to Barça after paying 75 million euros plus eleven in variables, acknowledged that he is taking care of his diet. “Mikky (Kiemeney, his partner) cooks. But I eat less than normal because the training is less than normal. It is not that I do not eat something in particular but I am careful with what I eat and what I drink.” De Jong admitted that what he misses the most is “going to training, seeing the players. Playing games. I enjoy them. I don’t see them. It’s hard and difficult to be home and wait until the moment I say you can come back but it’s what we are today. Hopefully we can train again soon. “last_img
