The new signing spoke in a press conference after his official presentation.

Amidst great expectation, Frenkie De Jong was presented as FC Barcelona’s latest signing on Friday. The Dutch star took to the pitch at the Camp Nou on a very special day, and then shared his thoughts on the exciting occasion in a press conference.

“My dream has always been to be an FC Barcelona player, so the decision to come here was very easy. I’m very happy and very proud,” he told the media.

“When the president, Josep Maria Bartomeu, came to Holland expressly to see me, it showed that they believed a lot in me. They told me that I would be a very important player for the club,” explained a delighted De Jong, who also commented on the close relationship between the club and his homeland:

“Holland and Barça have always had a good connection, and Barça and Ajax have a very similar way of playing, with the philosophy of Johan Cruyff. Ajax and Barça want to play in the same way, and that’s great for me.”

“Barça have the best players in the world”
“Everyone in the squad is a great player; Barça have the best players in the world and I will have to show that I can be part of the first XI, where I can play in any position in the midfield. I’m very happy to be able to play with Leo Messi, and I can’t wait to get started,” he continued.

“The presentation was very special. It was fantastic. I wasn’t expecting it. Seeing people shouting your name is really nice.”

Lionel Messi Blasts Barcelona For ‘Throwing’ Luis Suárez Out Of The Club

Published

on

Lionel Messi has launched a fresh attack on Barcelona’s hierarchy for the way the club treated his close friend Luis Suárez after the striker left for rival club, Atlético Madrid.

The Argentine playmaker, who threatened to leave Barça last month and recently hit out at the club’s president Josep Maria Bartomeu’s leadership, said Suárez was harshly treated and ‘thrown out’ of the club.

In an emotional goodbye post dedicated to Suarez, the club’s third-highest scorer of all time, Messi wrote: “I had already begun to imagine it but today I went into the dressing room and it truly dawned on me. It’s going to be so difficult to not continue to share every day with you both on the pitches and away from them.

“We’re going to miss you so much. We spent many years together, many mates, many lunches and many dinners. So many things we will never forget, all the time we spent together.

“It will be strange to see you in another shirt and much more to come up against you on the pitch. You deserved a farewell that fit with who you are: one of the most important players in the history of the club. Someone who achieved great things for the team and on an individual level.

“You did not deserve for them to throw you out as they did. But the truth is that at this stage nothing surprises me anymore.”

Ya me venía haciendo la idea pero hoy entré al vestuario y me cayó la ficha de verdad. Que difícil va a ser no seguir compartiendo el día a día con vos, tanto en las canchas como afuera. Los vamos a extrañar muchísimo. Fueron muchos años, muchos mates, comidas, cenas… Muchas cosas que nunca se van a olvidar, todos los días juntos. Va a ser raro verte con otra camiseta y mucho más enfrentarte. Te merecías que te despidan como lo que sos: uno de los jugadores más importantes de la historia del club, consiguiendo cosas importantes tanto en lo grupal como individualmente. Y no que te echen como lo hicieron. Pero la verdad que a esta altura ya no me sorprende nada. Te deseo todo lo mejor en este nuevo desafío. Te quiero mucho, los quiero mucho. Hasta pronto, amigo.

On Thursday, an emotional Suarez said goodbye to Barcelona and paid tribute to Messi after sealing a switch to Atletico Madrid. The Uruguay international had previously made it clear that he wanted to stay and see out his contract but was told by Barca’s new coach Ronald Koeman that his playing days were over at the club.

Suarez helped the club win four LaLiga titles, four Copa del Rey crowns, and the Champions League in 2015. He scored 195 goals and provided 113 assists in 283 outings for the club before his exit.
