"I’m happy with the goal I scored, it helped us": Frenkie de Jong

The Dutchman says he's very happy with his winner against Huesca.

He echoes Ronald Koeman's claim that the midfielders should step up when the attackers don't have enough chances.

"I’m happy with the goal I scored, it helped us," Frenkie de Jong told Barca TV after the narrow win against Huesca decided by his sole goal.

The midfielder made use of Leo Messi's inch-perfect pass as he explained: "When I scored, I tried to go further into the opponent's area and Messi gave me a wonderful pass to create the chance for me."

De Jong concluded, somewhat echoing Ronald Koeman's latest claim that Barca midfielders should score more goals: "When the chances for the attack are shut down, it is important for the midfielder to come forward and bring something to the team."

The 23-year-old has scored 2 goals and provided 2 assists in 21 games for Barca so far this season.
