Frenkie de Jong took part in a live video chat with the Barcelona website on Monday and named Steven Bergwijn as the toughest opponent he has ever faced.

The midfielder is currently back in Amsterdam during the corona virus outbreak, but he spoke with the Barcelona website via a webchat.

On how he is coping with the lockdown, De Jong said, “Fortunately, we can still go outside in the Netherlands, it is slightly better than in Spain.”

De Jong was asked to name the toughest opponent he had ever faced, and he came out with a surprising name, “It is difficult, because of course I don’t only play against one player during a match. But at Ajax I was sometimes used as a central defender and we played against PSV. Steven Bergwijn is then the most difficult opponent for me. He now plays with Tottenham Hotspur. “

On his time with Barcelona so far, De Jong is happy but not completely satisfied, “It wasn’t bad. I get to play a lot, I am happy with that in my first season. But I can do better. Some games were good, others less. I can do better than I have done so far. I am satisfied, but not completely. ”
