Matthijs de Ligt Dubbed 'The Dutch Phil Jones' After His Poor Juventus Form

Matthijs de Ligt Dubbed 'The Dutch Phil Jones' After His Poor Juventus Form

Matthijs de Ligt has been savagely mocked on social media for his shocking Juventus form, with some fans even dubbing him 'The Dutch Phil Jones'.

Juventus began their Champions League campaign with a draw after squandering a two-goal lead and De Ligt was singled out for his substandard performance in defence.

Atletico Madrid came from two down to snatch a point against Juventus thanks to two headed goals and fans pulled no punches in their assessment of the ex-Ajax skipper.

The 20-year-old defender was the talk of social media with supporters brutally comparing him to Manchester United's Phil Jones.

One Twitter user posted: "De Ligt being exposed as the Dutch Phil Jones once again. Hook it into my bloodstream."

De Ligt, who joined Juventus in the summer for £67.5 million, continues to adjust to his new team after a breakout campaign last season in the Netherlands.

He performed heroically for Ajax as he captained his side to the Champions League semi-final and Eredivisie triumph.
