Frenkie De Jong Was Heartbroken After Ajax Were Dumped Out Of The Champions League

Frenkie De Jong Was Heartbroken After Ajax Were Dumped Out Of The Champions League

Barcelona star Frenkie de Jong appeared emotionally devastated after his former club Ajax had been knocked out of the Champions League.

The 22-year-old Dutch midfielder signed a pre-contract agreement with Barca before completing his stunning £65m move in the summer.

And De Jong was instrumental for Ajax last season as they captured a domestic double and reached the Champions League semi-finals.

The Netherlands international saw his current side secure their place in the knockout stages of the Champions League, but he looked heartbroken after the full-time whistle.

De Jong was spotted with his hands on his waist and looking up into the sky before dropping his head down in disappointment as his teammates congratulated one another.

The Dutch side were condemned to a 1-0 defeat to Valencia on Tuesday and finished third in Group H, one point behind Chelsea and the Spanish club.

Barcelona boss Ernesto Valverde praised the impact of Fati and Perez after the match.

"We're thrilled because this was a really demanding rival, we played to win and my players, many of whom were making a debut of some kind, responded by showing competitive mettle," he said.

"Carles has the nose for more goals, and strikes the ball really nicely. Ansu is a born scorer and, although he's had some niggling pain, we wanted him to have some minutes.

"That it's a Barca lad who's the youngest ever scorer in this competition delights us.

"We feel obliged to win this competition. We want to win every single match and that's what we've achieved here."
