What Setién Said About De Jong After Barcelona’s 2-0 Defeat to Valencia

  Barcelona manager, Quique Setién has singled out midfielder, Frenkie De Jong for criticism following the Holland international’s display in his side’s La Liga 2-0 defeat to Valencia on Saturday.

If he can turn back the hands of time to avert the emotional trauma he is going through, he would have gladly done so. But as things stand, it is already too late. The horse has already bolted, locking the gate after that is meaningless. Kwange’s marriage misfort...
