Suara.com – Frenkie de Jong became the subject of ridicule by Manchester United fans after Barcelona’s defeat to Bayern Munich. That’s because the midfielder was reserved by coach Xavi Hernandez.
In the Bayern vs Barcelona duel which ended 2-0 in favor of the hosts, Frenkie de Jong was not seen in the Spanish team’s starting XI.
Frenkie de Jong only entered the field in the 61st minute to replace Gavi when Barcelona were already 0-2 behind Bayern Munich in the second matchday of Group C of the 2022-2023 Champions League.
The situation was then greeted by Manchester United fans with various responses. On social media Twitter, they made fun of Frenkie de Jong’s fate.

For information, Frenkie de Jong is Manchester United’s main target in the transfer market this summer. Erik ten Hag wants him to move to Old Trafford to complete the project to rebuild the Red Devils.
However, Frenkie de Jong, whose salary was cut by Barcelona during the pandemic, refused to leave. He originally wanted to play in the Champions League where this season the Red Devils only played in the Europa League.
Now, Frenkie de Jong does get the chance to play in the Champions League. However, the player who openly wants to be sold by Barcelona is in fact no longer a mainstay player for Xavi Hernandez.
Referring Transfermarkt, De Jong has played seven times this season with a score of one goal. However, in that period, he recorded only two 90 minutes.
“Remember, Frenkie de Jong made that decision, now he can enjoy it. Enjoy sitting on the bench,” wrote the @CantonasCol *** account.
