Barcelona’s young and promising Dutch midfielder Frenkie de Jong plays a very important part of the Barcelona midfield. The injury he faced in the first match after lockdown against RCD Mallorca sidelined him for a long time which was a major setback for the club who dropped points significantly after that.
De Jong joined in Tuesday’s training session and could return by the weekend in the match against Real Valladolid. He suffered an injury in the soleus of his right leg and was confirmed on June 21 but he already missed the match against and is all set to return against Valladolid. He was even angry with the Barcelona medical team about how they treated him.
Quique Setien spoke yesterday in a press conference when asked about the Dutchman:
“It would be the ideal situation [to play against Valladolid]. His feeling is he’s improving. He trained today even though it was with little intensity what we did today. He’s feeling better all the time and the feeling is that he comes back in and we look at his recovery to see if he’s OK to play at Valladolid.”
Hope we see the exciting Barca man back in action soon because he is one of the fittest football for the Catalans and we all enjoy his football.
