Quique Setien: 'De Jong has no limit, I don't know how far he can go'
- The boss particularly praises the Dutchman ahead of the Getafe game.
- He expresses hope the 22-year-old will continue learning and improving.
- De Jong has significantly upgraded his attacking skills as he scored his second goal of the season last week.
During Friday's press conference, Quique Setien has particularly assessed the recent performances of Frenkie de Jong.
He told the assembled media, as quoted by Mundo Deportivo: "Frenkie de Jong is a player that wants to keep learning and improving, which is why I said he has no limit, so I don’t know how far he can go. He does well every training session. I hope he can keep growing, and keep improving."
De Jong has recently significantly upgraded his attacking skills. He has registered five shots in his six games for Barcelona under Quique Setien, according to Opta. This is two more than in 26 (!) games under Ernesto Valverde.
Besides, De Jong scored his first goal for Blaugrana since September 14 in the game against Real Betis on Sunday..
Interestingly, De Jong's former coach Ten Haag claimed shouldn't be a box-to-box midfielder.
