Barcelona: Fans were impressed with Frenkie de Jong’s training statistics

Barcelona fans appear to have been impressed with what Frenkie de Jong has been able to achieve in his first couple of months at the Camp Nou.

According to a report by AS, as relayed by Barcacentre, the Holland international is believed to be leading the charts in terms of some of his statistics, with none of his team-mates thought to have been as impressive as him.

It is stated that the 22-year-old is the toughest player in the squad, he covers the most ground, wins the most balls, recovers the quickest, has the most aerobic capacity and provides the most diverse heart maps.

Barcelona signed the former Ajax midfielder for a mammoth initial £65m transfer fee, with another £9.5m potentially being added to the overall figure should he meet certain clauses within the deal (as per BBC).

Since arriving in Catalonia, De Jong has become an integral member of Ernesto Valverde’s squad as one of the first names on the teamsheet. He has made ten appearances across all competitions, scoring one goal and providing one assist (Transfermarkt).

Fans reacted to the news that the youngster had been topping the charts with delight, whilst many of them expecting the 22-year-old to become a star in the future.

Here are just some of their reactions…
