According to rumors circulating on the other side of the Pyrenees, the Dutch midfielder was suspected of having faked an illness to miss the trip to Belgium by his sports director, Deco. A heated exchange would have followed between the two men by telephone according to the indiscretions of the RAC1.

Asked about this by the Dutch newspaper De Telegraafthe Batavian agent cut short the controversy in a tone of annoyance. “This is fake news. This is the biggest nonsense that has been spouted around Frenkie De Jong in a long time. The player was simply sick. He had symptoms of fever and could neither travel nor play.expressed Ali Dursun before rushing to the aid of his protégé. “This guy is a pro through and through. He’s just a professional, a model player. Frenkie’s reputation is unaffected because he still lives up to his standards. There was no shouting over the phone as claimed, no question marks. Things are now created in a wrong way. The relationship with Deco is simply good and stable”he ended up concluding, comments reported by Ace.
