It was a big miss on Laporta’s part. […] I always opt for the youngest, because he is the future of the club. You have to be lucky to have players like Pedri. […] It was a bit of a release to stop coaching Barca. »

Frenkie de Jong

« All I know is that Frenkie De Jong wants to stay at FC Barcelona. He told me two days ago. For me, de Jong is a great player for Barca. »
