Future armband holder? De Jong appears at Estadio Johan Cruyff presentation alongside 4 Barca captains
- FC Barcelona hold a large-scale event devoted to the new stadium's opening.
- Several Barca players attend a symbolic friendly between Ajax U-19 and Juvenil A.
- Ernesto Valverde and Ansu Fati are also present.
Today is a big day for the club and La Masia in particular.
The new Estadio Johan Cruyff is presented on Tuesday evening. The event is followed by Cules all over the world while there's a huge celebration in the city.
What's curious, Frenkie de Jong took his place in a group photo alongside the captain quartet. He was likely invited because of the opening game which will see his former side Ajax (U-19) facing Barca's Juvenil A. However, it's also important to mention Frenkie's partial connection with Johan Cruyff's traditions. The 22-year-old has recently told that he appreciates when people compare him with the past legend.
Still, it would be special to see Frenkie with an armband in a few years, keeping in mind that all of our captains' age, excluding Sergi Roberto, exceeds 30.
