Barcelona's Frenkie de Jong | Tactical Profile (Ajax Amsterdam)

  • Published on Oct 4, 2018
  • It’s easy to see why Frenkie De Jong has been linked with elite clubs like Spurs and Barcelona. Spurs have benefited greatly over the years from having Mousa Dembele who can destabilize the opposition from deeper areas, but with his age and injury history, Spurs have to start thinking of a future without him. De Jong’s understanding of space and his style of play would fit Barcelona quite well, as they could also do with some fresh legs in midfield. For either club, getting De Jong would ensure themselves a gifted young midfielder who has the chance to become great quite soon.

    yep you right, this season will be start of hyperlinking chemistry between arthur melo & fdj, the duo who hopefully fill the gap that already left by xavi & iniesta

    Very nice video, as always.

    Out of curiosity, is there any chance of getting a tactical profile video on Guti Hernandez, Arjen Robben and/or Franck Ribery?

    Mousa dembele, the most under rated player ever. De bruyne and every spurs players agreed that he is a eru great midfielder.

      i screamed. I woke up in the morning and checked my notifications and I saw "Barca signs De jong." At first, I thought it was fake and then realized it was true. I was so happy, I don't remember being so happy for a signing.

    Spurs or Premier League wouldn't be a good fit for De Jong, he is not physical enough (yet). He is a very good player, but he needs to become a bigger guy to survive there. Many players from the Eredivsie go to the Premier League, but hardly anyone makes it there. I watched Spurs against PSV, and the difference in physique is very noticeable. Maybe ManC, but Barcelona would be a better team for him.

  • Oguz Han

    Overrated player. 2 years ago no one heared about him (bought from Willem 2 for 1€, yes ONE EURO) and now they say hes over 50 million worth. Ajax do deliver good young players but Frenkie is just not worth that much. Sometimes i get the idea that clubs are willingly paying Ajax that much.

    • Mobile Entertainer
      Mobile Entertainer 9 months ago

      No you are a dumb ass when you don't see that Frenkie is a world class player then you better watch hockey or something bro because you don't understand the game at all.

    • Oguz Han
      Oguz Han Year ago +2

      Im personaly very impressed by the performance of de Ligt. Its a priviledge to have both de Ligt and de Jong but yeah thats Ajax' compliment for having one of the best youth infrastructure in football world. I always find that Ajax lacks experience and not talent. A few years ago they started to buy some experience with Huntelaar but that was more for the elder role that Ajax was lacking. It needed a few high profile players between 26/30 age and that just what they did with adding Blind and Tadic. I allso like the matured Ziyech a lot. I think Ajax is very close to be CL knock out stage material but that juvenile team just needs a bit more experience to become realy common in that part of football. Like allways time and the results will tell us what will happen. Enjoy it indeed buddy

      DutchNewbJr Year ago +1

      @Oguz Han you're right! but its nice to have one of the most upcoming young talents in your favorite club, im enjoying it while it last...

    • Oguz Han
      Oguz Han Year ago

      First, football is a teamsport which require 11 starting player. Subbing 1 for another should always be possible. For an amouth of 70 million or so it should be very easely possible.even stronger, i would say "JACKPOT" at the end of the season he will have around 60/70 matches played for Ajax. That would be, if he goes for 70 mil, a gain of 1 mil for every pro match he played for Ajax. So yeah, i wouldnt miss that oppertunity. You cant maybe cover Frenkie by talent (eventho Ajax has a lot of talents) but you can sure replace him with an outstanding midfielder with more experience what could let Ajax even benefit more.

    • DutchNewbJr
      DutchNewbJr Year ago +1

      @Oguz Han hahah lets hope! But once he is sold, where can we find a player like Frenkie isthe question .. he is one of a kind :( so part of me really dont want him to go, but 60m+ for 1 player Ajax could really use good and invest .. 😣 haha

    Good player for Ajax, but highly overrated. People sayhe is worth 80 million EUR....

    De jong has a nice dribbling technique at the middle line, but he doesn't succees closer to the opponant's goal

    • DutchNewbJr
      DutchNewbJr Year ago

      Tomkuyt you down talking de jong, because you support ajax’s rival. We all know de jong is extreme talented and proves it match to match in big games, france - netherlands for example, and now in champions league. You dont understand football clown

    idklol Year ago

    i love de jong but he's not ajax's greatest talent; that title still goes to dolberg. he missed a huge portion of last season and is only now getting back but he has it in him to be an absolutely world class striker.

  • Kautilya

    Well, Dembele is aging and De Jong would be the perfect fit tbh. Hoping he would see that at this age it's better to play for Spurs.

      @Kasper Hermans He is NOT the back up for Gravenberch. Ünüvar has a completely different playing style. Besides, they aren't even playing on the same positions. Ünüvar is an attacking midfielder and can also play on the left wing. Gravenberch is a centre midfielder and could basically play everywhere on the midfield, except as an attacking midfielder.

    • Kasper Hermans
      Kasper Hermans Year ago +1

      We already have the back-up for Gravenberch: Naci Ünüvar. He is just 15 years and 4 months.
      Last year as a 14 year old he was topscorer of the Future Cup (a U17 Tournament) where teams of Juventus, Sporting, Sevilla, PSG and Anderlecht were present. And Ünüvar isn't even a striker.
