Luuk de Jong gets a zero: ‘Cause that was his contribution, horrible’

It rains insufficient for FC Barcelona players after the 3-0 defeat at Benfica in the Champions League, but Luuk de Jong‘s performance won the crown. That’s what the Spanish newspapers judge, who are hard-hitting the Dutch striker.
Diario Sport hands out a 2 to De Jong and summarizes his performance as‘ awkward ‘. ‘A number 9 of Barcelona should not miss for an empty goal like Luuk de Jong did, after Frenkie de Jong gave the ball on a platter. It doesn’t matter how fast Verissimo set a block. De Jong added nothing in the penalty area.
De Jong gets a lot of it in La Vanguardia: the newspaper keeps it remarkably at zero. ‘
Because that was his contribution to the game, ‘is the explanation. His miss was’ terrible ‘, reads the clear language. Marca states that the ex-PSV ‘failed very badly‘. ‘Frenkie gave him a gold ball that he really only had to slide in. It even happened to him again. They are mistakes that should not be made in the Champions League.

Frenkie de JongOok Mundo Deportivo speaks of an ‘unimaginable’ miss, but also focuses the arrows at Frenkie de Jong. โ€œDid the chance Luuk blew up for an extra pass or should he have shot himself? After a hundred races for Barcelona, the Dutchman has never met the expectations that were there when he arrived.
The other newspapers are merciful to the former Ajacied. โ€œHe was one of the best attackers in the first half. He should have had two assists. He sought the way forward with the ball and created a lot of danger. After Piquรฉ’
s change, he lost his offensive power,โ€ Marca writes. As one of the few players, Sport gets him a pass, a 6. ‘In the midfield he brought energy into the game and was threatening, but Koeman smothered that in the bud by bringing him back. ‘ The Catalan medium calls it a โ€œsacrifice.โ€
MemphisMemphis Depay gets a 4 of Sport. โ€œFrustrated,โ€ summarized the attacker‘s performance. โ€œNothing came out, although at least he kept trying, even when the game had already been played. He sank far, but sought out the impossible. His frustration was obvious.โ€ La Vanguardia comes out at the same figure. โ€œHe’s no longer as successful as it was in the beginning, but he keeps trying.โ€
