The Spanish press was delighted with Frenkie de Jong’s performance in Barcelona’s 3-2 win over Real Betis on Sunday.

The Dutch international has come under some criticism in Spain for his performances recently but on Sunday, De Jong showed his true qualities. He not only put in a dominating midfield performance but also scored in their 3-2 win at Betis.

After the game, Spanish newspaper AS wrote, “De Jong shows the meaning of the total player. He came with an exhibition of talent, power and efficiency that had not been seen in one player for a long time. The best player on the field. We lack superlatives to describe his performance.

“He gave a football demonstration that left everyone in Benito Villamarín speechless and not only because of his extraordinary goal, a volley after a great check with the chest, but also because of the ease with which he breaks the defensive lines and came to his own defence. The Dutchman has shown himself to be the great player he is. He is ready to give colour to this decade. “

Sport added, “It was an exhibition of its many qualities. Always thinking ahead, always dangerous and combining like never before with Messi. “

Mundo Deportivo also enjoyed his performance, “Frenkie de Jong is taking another step forward. In the first half in particular, the midfielder appeared determined to take control of the game. The face of Ajax finally showed itself. “
