Former Real Madrid midfielder hit at Barcelona midfielder Frenkie de Jong playing

Ex-Blanco midfielder Van der Vaart believes that De Jong should play more vertically.

Frenkie has had a slow start of the season both at the club and at the national team.

"Frenkie de Jong doesn't even think about shooting at goal. It's as if he doesn't like shooting," Marca quote former Real Madrid midfielder Rafael van der Vaart saying.

Despite Ronald Koeman implementing the 4-2-3-1 formation at Barcelona, Frenkie hasn't improved his performances in comparison to last season. Some might say that he has been doing even worse.

De Jong has himself said that his start of the season has been 'mediocre'. Koeman has also said that the midfielder knows that he wasn't at his best during the match against Sevilla.
