The Dutch footballer was one of the Barcelona players who showed his face after the resounding defeat against Bayern in the quarterfinals of the Champions League.
Frenkie de Jong was one of those who spoke to the press after the shameful defeat of Barcelona 8-2 against Bayern Munich by Champions League. The Dutch midfielder said the match in Lisbon showed they have “a lot of problems”.
“I think today it showed that we have a lot of problems in the team. I think tonight it showed us that and we know we have to make a lot of changes. It’s difficult for the fans and we feel sorry for them, so I think we have to change a lot of things. “said the former Ajax.
On the other hand, De Jong acknowledged that they had illusions of passing. “We thought we could beat Bayern. The first 15-20 minutes mostly because they scored early, but we drew fast and we had two good chances, so we believed in it, of course. You could see it at the beginning,” he said.
Although everything changed when the meeting was happening. “They were much better than us. I don’t think it’s about too much talent, I think it’s about putting intensity and hard work and we have to change these things,” he explained.
And he closed: “Of course it is a great disappointment, but not only for me, for the whole club, because this club is used to winning trophies. It is the biggest club in the world, so we have to perform much better than tonight. “.
