Frenkie de Jong picked Barcelona last season after all of Europe’s elite teams were after the Dutch midfielder.

De Jong’s performances have been top-notch from day one.

However, the cultural shock for the Dutchman in Barcelona was something else.

For that reason, he tells Vi a funny anecdote about his arrival for dinner.

“In the beginning in Barcelona I made the classic mistake by entering a restaurant at 6pm because I was getting hungry.

“The place was totally empty and they gave me the lunch menu”

The Spaniards are known for their late meals, but it looks like De Jong learned a lesson the hard way.
