"People stop me and say: 'We want the Champions League"
"When you change coach it's not a good sign, but we did well under Valverde and we also hope to well under Quique Setien," the Dutch midfielder told 'Sport' after finishing a Nike promotional event.
He has not been at Barca for too long, but De Jong already knows the high expectations Barcelona fans have. And even more so after their recent collapses in the Champions League.
"People stop me and say to me: 'We want the Champions League.' We are very keen to win it," the Dutch footballer confirmed, who sees a bright future for Riqui Puig, a footballer Setien played the other day.
"I really like Riqui's style. Of course we could play together," he analysed. They were together in the middle of the pitch in the last cup match against Ibiza.
To finish, a demanding De Jong still believes he can improve significantly. "I give myself a six (out of 10)."
