Van der Vaart: "Frenkie should be judged less as a scorer or a number 10 because he is not. The discussion is over. He should be compared to Bayern's Kimmich, but he is still better."
Van der Vaart: "Frenkie has a hard time against small opponents because they don't leave spaces. That is why he is not at his best at sixteen meters away from the goal, and unfortunately he will never become a true scoring midfielder, I am afraid."

🎙️[RAC1] | Joan Laporta: “I did hope that at the last minute Messi said he would play for free. I would have liked that and he would have convinced me. I understand that the League would have accepted it. But we cannot ask a player of his level.”

🎙️| Joan Laporta: "Everything indicates that he already had the offer from PSG. Everyone knew that he had a very powerful offer. We knew that from Messi they had a very good offer."

The coach plans to return to 4-3-3 now that he will recover the injured forwards, and will reorder the midfield and defense
