Barcelona legend Xavi had heaped praise on Dutch star Frenkie de Jong after his performance against Valencia at the weekend.

De Jong put in his finest performance so far for Barcelona last weekend with a goal and assist in the win over Valencia.

Speaking to Marca, Xavi was full of praise for the performance at the weekend, “The level they reached Valencia was exceptionally high. They recaptured the ball by putting high pressure and everyone worked for the team. That was a very good Barcelona. Until now it is going very well, apart from a few results away from home. ”

Xavi then singled out De Jong for compliments, “He has everything. How he runs free, the power with which he starts, how he passes two and gives the last pass … And he also works for the team and is aggressive for the goal. He also does not lose sight of his position and does not suffer any loss of the ball.

“This boy is going to mark an era. But don’t forget Arthur and Rakitic. Barcelona has an exceptional midfield and can dominate matches very well.”
