Valverde quite on Frenkie de Jong and Carlos Vela
Barcelona’s Ernesto Valverde hás refused to talk about players linked with the club with Frenkie de Jong and Carlos Vela.
“I insist on the same answers – he’s a great player who is on another team,” the Blaugrana boss said when De Jong was brought up at his news conference prior to Sunday’s La Liga match against Leganes. He told Goal.com
“If I start talking about what’s going on in the press, it’s not going to go away. I’m not going to comment on this. All the respect to De Jong and Ajax.”
On Carlos Vela rumours
Valverde said: “He’s a great player. He’s played in our league but we don’t normally talk about players from other clubs.
“A lot is said about every name that comes up. I can understand, being Mexican, why you are interested but he plays for another club.”
