Koeman: "We need midfielders who score eight to ten goals per season,"

The coach says he demands more attacking involvement from the fellow De Jong. Koeman says De Jong is taking more responsibility - he has already scored twice this season.

"It is true that we have spoken with Frenkie about his qualities and where we need him," Ronald Koeman revealed in the press conference, as quoted by Marca.

"He is a player who can help a lot to build from the back, but we also need him to reach the opposite area. He is assuming more responsibility."

"We need midfielders who score eight to ten goals per season," the coach concluded, echoing his earlier claim when he said his team needed more goals from the midfielders.

De Jong has scored 2 goals and provided 3 assists so far this season. His fellow defensive midfielders Miralem Pjanic and Sergio Busquets are yet to score this term.

Meanwhile, attacking midfielders Pedri and Philippe Coutinho have netted 3 goals each.
