10/25/2021 –

I don’t like the public whistling at a player, you have to help and support the players on your team. ” This is how Ronald Koeman expressed himself at the post-Classic press conference on the whistles a Luuk de Jong. It was also not the first time that the Dutch international suffered criticism from his fans. His challenge as a culé is not only to score goals.

The attacker, who plays in the Barcelona on loan from the Seville, has not gotten off to a good start in the Barça. The demand in the Catalan team is always maximum, but, in addition, this year the team is affected and weighed down by the departure of Messi, pointed injuries (Dembélé, Ansu Fati, Kun, Martin Braithwaite...) and his poor offensive records, which help explain his irregular, hesitant and uncompetitive start.

But those words of praise for the Dutchman, who last year in the Seville He played 48 games between all competitions and scored 9 goals, a good part of the Camp Nou has sentenced him. Against him Dynamo of Kiev there were already some recriminating whistles after some missed occasion. But against him Real Madrid, the anger increased. He was whistled when stepping on the grass and also in almost every action that the attacker starred in.


At Barça, the international orange He has participated in eight games, in which he has started in five, and has achieved a goal, the one he signed against I raised. With the recoveries of Ansu Fati, the Kun and the imminent of Dembélé, Luuk de Jong he will have few options to reconcile with the culé stands. But it will. Koeman Believe on him.
