Now a key member of the team, the Dutch midfielder celebrates his hundredth game as a Barça player
Frenkie de Jong is not just making up the numbers. Barça's '21' played his 100th game wearing the club's jersey on Wednesday in Lisbon and has been a key member of the squad for some time. Not just a guaranteed starter, the Dutchman has become an important cog in how the team plays. Everything goes through him.
The midfielder posed with a jersey with the number '100' to celebrate his centenary of games and spoke with Barça TV: "I am very proud to reach 100 games". When asked about his favourite game and goal with Barça, he stated the final of the Copa del Rey versus Athletic Club (0-4), during which he scored the second goal.
