Frenkie de Jong is happy with the news that Lionel Messi is staying with Barcelona.

Messi announced on Friday that he would be staying at Barcelona next season, and after Netherlands 1-0 win over Poland, De Jong was asked about the news by NOS.

He responded, “Yes, I read it. Personally I am very happy with it. He is the best player in the world. So if he stays, you are happy.

“I have not had any contact with people from Barcelona. It became known quite late and we were preparing for the game, but I am very happy with it.

“It was something between Messi and the club. I have no control over that and I was not in Barcelona, ​​so it makes sense to follow it from a distance,”

De Jong returns to Barcelona on Tuesday after the Nations League clash with Italy.
