Valverde's honest assessment of Barcelona's new boys

Barcelona made a flurry of new signings this summer and after 6 months at the club, Barcelona boss Ernesto Valverde has made an honest assessment of the players at the club.

He said, “Antoine Griezmann is not just a goalscorer but also a hard worker. He knows how to drop into midfield and he knows the moment in which he has to help the full back. We are very happy with him.” 

Frenkie de Jong covers a lot of ground and he is playing well. However, he still has more to give, especially inside the opponents’ box.” 

Neto and Junior are performing as expected. When Junior has come in for Jordi Alba, he has done it well and he is more and more involved. As for Neto, he is always ready to come in and he is a very competitive player.” 

“(Ousmane Dembele’s) latest injury has been cruel because he was mentally right to work hard. He is a player with so much quality that you want to see him out on the field. Right now, he is working hard on his recovery and we want to see him back, we see a lot of quality in him.”
