The Dutch footballer Xavi Simons admires his countrymate Frenkie de Jong by saying he is one of the best players in the world. Both de Jong and Simons play in the midfield position for the country and their respective clubs. Well, recently, in an interview, Xavi Simons said,
“In my opinion, Frenkie de Jong is one of the best players in the world.”
He also said he is a special player. When he trains, he puts in a lot of hard work, which reflects on the field. He gets a lot of criticism, which is not right.

De Jong is one of the main players for both his national side and the club. Without him on the field, both teams have struggled, and they often miss his presence when he doesn’t play. So far, he hasn’t missed a single game for Barcelona in La Liga and the Champions League. Also, Barcelona is undefeated and has won both matches of the Championship League and six of their nine matches in La Liga.
Well, De Jong has contributed a lot to the club in those wins and has stood like a pillar. Apart from Xavi Simons, the Barcelona manager, Xavi Hernandez, has also praised de Jong. He wants him to stay with the club for a long time.
