‘When you’re not playing You feel that something is missing. It’s good to be back,’ said Frenkie. 

It was not a good time for Barcelona after their Europa League elimination followed by a devastating defeat to arch-rivals Real Madrid. Injuries of 4 key players like Frenkie, Pedro Gonzalez Lopez Pedri, Ousmane Dembele and Andreas Christensen. 

‘When four key players are injured It’s no surprise. That some performances don’t live up to expectations,’ revealed the Dutch midfielder.

Frenkie made a real start before being taken off the field in the 78th minute. With Frank Gessier playing instead. Also talking about being substituted off the field. ‘I’ve only been training with the team since Tuesday. So playing 90 minutes would be too much.’

Finally, the 25-year-old midfielder also thanked the fans and spoke positively about his hopes of winning the Spanish league title. ‘I hope we can give these fans good things at the end of the season (La Liga champions), I thank them for their support.’
