Barcelona: Ronald de Boer: De Ligt to PSG? I’d prefer to see him at Barcelona or Manchester City
Barcelona He praised De Jong
The 49-year-old has explained that his compatriot doesn’t fit in with the football philosophy of the French club.
“He wouldn’t need to adapt, and he would be ready to play.
“People see him with a ball, but without the ball he is also very good
“[PSG] are a very good team with great players, but they a team that don’t play like [De Ligt] is used to.
“He must have confidence in his own character. If he doesn’t play the first few months [at Barcelona], he should remain calm.
“De Ligt has this character as he’s patient and he’s going to be a great signing for Barcelona, if it’s finally done.”
De Boer went on to praise the Blaugrana‘s new signing Frenkie de Jong and has backed Jasper Cillessen‘s decision to depart the club this summer.
“[De Jong] is a very talented player and he’s had a spectacular year,” he added.
“His potential is great and his style is close to that of Barcelona, so I think he’s going to be successful.
“Sometimes you have to see who is in front of you and [Cillessen] has [Marc-Andre] ter Stegen who is an impressive goalkeeper.
“[Cillessen] is also a great goalkeeper and he wants to play in the important games.
“He has the quality to be in a good team and I understand that he wants to go out.
“He has learned a lot at Barcelona, but he has to look for his own success.”
