Barcelona legend Xavi expects Frenkie de Jong to be one of the stars at the 2022 World Cup.

On the official Instagram account of the 2022 World Cup a number of legends were asked to discuss players, and Xavi chose Frenkie de Jong.

He said,”I was very happy when Frenkie de Jong signed for Barcelona. I wished him the best of luck. I consider him a footballer who can indicate a new era at Barcelona.”

Xavi does not want to compare himself to Frenkie, “Frenkie de Jong is Frenkie de Jong. He has nothing to do with Andrés Iniesta, me or Sergio Busquets, he is a completely different player.”

The Spaniard expects Frenkie to be one of the stars at the next World Cup, “He will be one of the best players at the World Cup for the Netherlands. There is no doubt about that. The Netherlands was unlucky that it didn’t qualify for the previous World Cup, but now they have a very good generation that can achieve great things.”
