If you look at Barcelona’s recent transfer history, you would have been saddened by Frenkie de Jong’s transfer.

The Dutch midfielder had so much to offer. He was making runs to the final third, shielding the defense, and spraying the ball to the forwards.

De Jong was doing it all. And then he joined the constricted Barcelona system. He does nothing now. And his footballing skills have regressed the most.

No longer is he an adventurer. He gives side passes. No longer does he shield the defense. That is Sergio Busquets job. No longer does he spray the ball forward. that is Arthur’s job. De Jong just gives side passes.
