Luuk de Jong- "I am a player with a different skill set"

“I am a player with a different skill set” – New Barcelona signing Luuk de Jong on what he brings to the club

New Barcelona signing Luuk de Jong believes his physical presence could add a new dimension to the Blaugrana’s attack.

Speaking on Barcelona’s official YouTube channel, De Jong thinks his skill set could be utilised by manager Ronald Koeman, as he is tall and possesses aerial prowess. De Jong said:

“I am tall, I am a good header of the ball. As I already said before, I am a player with a different skillset. Koeman knows that he can use me in the final minutes when he needs a player that’s tall and good with his head. That’s the kind of player I am. As I showed in Sevilla, I also have other aspects to my game.”

Luuk de Jong has arrived in Barcelona from Sevilla on a loan deal with an option to make the move permanent next summer. The 31-year-old Dutch striker has been signed as a direct replacement for Antoine Griezmann, who rejoined Atletico Madrid on a loan deal.
