Koeman shifts with Frenkie de Jong: ‘Very well, I knew he...

Ronald Koeman refused to praise stars such as Pedri and Ousmane Dembélé after FC Barcelona’s Champions League victory over Juventus, but was full of praise for Frenkie de Jong. The 23-year-old Dutchman played in the final phase as a central defender.

Due to the failure of central defender Ronald Araújo, De Jong pushed a line back. “We have known all season that we have few options in defense,” said Koeman. “If we miss a player, we run into problems. But I think Frenkie has done very well. In the Netherlands he has already played in that position, so I knew he could do it.”

Koeman is more than satisfied after the 0-2 win over Juventus. Ousmane Dembélé and Lionel Messi scored the goals. “I think we have been superior”, the Barça coach concludes. “We constantly found the free man, had depth in our game and should have scored more often. It’s a great victory. I’m very happy, it was our best game.”
