This is what Van Basten said to Sport, “I was expecting him to be a really good player but I didn’t think of him playing for a team like Barcelona,”

“I felt he’d be more suited to a team like Juventus or Inter because the football in Italy is a bit different to the football they play at Barcelona.

“Barca play a really clever type of football, close together with everyone at a high level technically. I think he is more of an opportunistic forward who should just go forward and see what happens.

“He does that in a marvellous way but it’s not the way he plays at Barcelona.”

The Former Ajax man has already won two trophies in Spain and could add to his tally if La Blaugrana win the UEFA Champions League this Saturday.
