De Jong: Puig has Barca DNA and can become a regular starter

The Dutchman believes the 20-year-old is more than ready to become a regular at Barca and he notices that Puig knows perfectly how the Catalans have to play.

"For me, he's much more than ready to be a regular starter at Barca, but it's not something that depends on me," Frenkie de Jong has told Diario Sport when asked on fellow midfielder Riqui Puig.

The Dutchman concluded: "Riqui has a lot of quality, he has the Barca DNA, everyone can see it when he's on the pitch. He knows perfectly how Barca have to play."

The 20-year-old has impressed in the final games of the 2019-2020 La Liga campaign, starting in the last three fixtures.

Puig is now expected to make his Champions League debut against Napoli as Barca are short of the midfield options with Arturo Vidal and Sergio Busquets suspended and Arthur rebelling.
