Frenkie de Jong gives an exclusive interview to ESPN as he concedes he could have joined Barcelona back in 2018. He also reveals he asked for advice from former Barcelona legend and current Dutch national team head coach Ronald Koeman.
De Jong says: "I asked him for advice on my choice for a new club. He was really enthusiastic about Barcelona, I don't need to say that! Of course, as a coach he's really good, he gives the team confidence, tactically he is strong, I think we're all really happy with him."
