Kluivert: 'Barça fans are going to love how De Jong plays'

The former FC Barcelona striker is confident that his fellow countryman can become a hit with the fans

Former Barça striker Patrick Kluivert, who has plenty of knowledge of Ajax and Dutch football, is another name on the list of people excited about the arrival of Frenkie de Jong. The one-time number 9 for the club says that "The fans at the Camp Nou will love how he plays, and he can fit in very well at Barça because of his playing style."

Kluivert's son, Justin, played alongside De Jong at Ajax, and thus he has seen plenty of the new signing in action. "He is very good at constructing play, is very good on the ball and makes great passes. The competition in the first team will also make him grow."

The Barça-Netherlands connection

Kluivert is one of the more famous of the 19 Dutch players to have played for the club, and predicts big things for De Jong as the 20th representative from the country at Barça.
