De Jong leaves Griezmann in evidence

first_imgThe two brand new signings of this summer, Frenkie de Jong and Antoine Griezmann accepted the challenge proposed by Barça TV to know who knows more about the Classic. Dutch and French they underwent a battery of questions, demonstrating his football knowledge about Barcelona and Real Madrid.In any case, Griezmann was the one who came out worse off the stake. When asked to say three coaches in the history of Real Madrid, the striker only gave two names: “Zidane and Mourinho”. Even more offside stayed when asked to say three tourist places to visit in Madrid, literally blank, with the excuse that “did not leave home”, and before the eyes of a strange De Jong, who reminded him that he had been in the Spanish capital for several years.Nor did he answer the question of three players from the Masia who played the Classic last season at the Camp Nou by saying “Piqué, Busquets and Messi”reminding him that The Argentine did not participate. At least Griezmann was more successful when he was claimed by four French players who have played a Classic: “Abidal, Henry, Giuly and I” how also to the question of three historical strikers of Real Madrid: “Ronaldo, Raúl and Morientes”, curiously forgetting Cristiano Ronaldo, the top gunner in the history of the white club. Instead, De Jong proved to be a walking encyclopedia about the Classic, answering practically without blinking all the questions. From three current Barcelona players with more than twenty classics, “Messi, Piqué and Busquets”, three 5-0 scorers in 2010, “Villa, Xavi and Jeffren”, four Dutch players who have played a Classic, “Cruyff, Kluivert, Overmars and Frank de Boer “or three historic Real Madrid midfielders:” Zidane, Guti and Makelele “. The only failure of the Dutchman came to the question of four players who have played in Barcelona and Real Madrid, since he could only say three: “Figo, Eto, and Ronaldo”, regretting when Michael Laudrup was also told, among others.So, the final score of the five questions that each one had to answer about the Classic was of a clear 4-2 in favor of the Dutch.last_img
