Huntil recently, Luuk de Jong It was a discard within the template of the Barcelona. The Dutch, brought at the request of ronald koeman, was considered by many as unworthy of being part of the Barça squad. A striker who was not up to the task of a team that, precisely, had no striker.
The future of the player loaned by the Seville seemed far from Can Bara. Its continuity, impossible. From the club they worked on his departure. On the possibility of returning it to Seville or to look for a new destination, like the Cádiz. However, the player has never been for the job. He is very clear that he is not willing to lower his cache and go from playing in teams that are fighting to do something in Europe to fighting for salvation in the category.
Probably those statements from koeman in which he compared Luuk with Neymar when it came to finishing off balls hanging from the area they did not help him. They made him an object of ridicule.
the best thing you’ve ever done Luuk has been not to lose faith in himself. While in the offices they moved to try to remove him from the club, he has continued working.
In the end, driven by necessity, hurried by casualties, Xavi has been forced to resort to it. And it turned out that Luuk He has responded with goals. So much so that he has put the Barça manager in a bind.
The Barcelona He is not left with goals, precisely. DeJong has shown that he has it. He has scored three of the last four goals of the bara. He has been watching the goalkeeper for three consecutive games and his own Xavi has surrendered to the evidence. “Luuk scores goals and he does it well. How am I going to get him out of the team? If he keeps performing, I’ll keep playing.” pointed the egarense from Arabia.
In this situation, you have to consider what will happen to the striker in this winter market. Right now, DeJong is closer to staying than leaving. Xavi You have found that it can be useful to you. In addition, the urgencies that existed to be able to register Fernando Torres. Therefore, unless there is a new addition, Luuk will continue until the end of the course.
