Barcelona has a large number of casualties in its squad due to contagion by coronavirus (COVID-19) and also due to injuries. Given this, Xavi Hernández has been using players who have had little continuity under his command, such as the Dutch Luuk de Jong, who has not been able to shine until now.
However, the attacker makes the most of the minutes of play he has in the match against Mallorca, on date 19 of LaLiga Santander, and was in charge of scoring the partial advantage of the ‘Azulgranas’. The annotation did not go unnoticed by the fans nor by MisterChip, the popular Spanish statesman.
Through his Twitter account, the renowned character highlighted the goal scored by the player from the Netherlands and even revealed that he had already surpassed one of the historical players of the ‘Culés’.
“Goals in his first 13 official games with Barcelona … Luuk de Jong: 2 – Lionel Messi: 1″ MisterChip wrote. The publication caused a lot of debate on social networks, especially since the former Sevilla player has been widely criticized for his lack of relevance during the season. Let us remember that the arrival of the forward coincided with the departure of the ‘Pulga’, who had reaped impressive goalscoring figures.
It is worth mentioning that until before the match against Mallorca, Luuk de Jong had only scored once in the nine games he played for LaLiga Santander: it was 3-0 over Levante, for the seventh day. In addition to those matches, he had three other appearances in the Champions League group stage, where he could not make a difference.
