Frenkie De Jong has been a revelation for FC Barcelona this season. The Dutchman has arguably enjoyed his best season yet at the Catalan club courtesy of manager Xavi Hernandez’s new tweaks to their system as well as the implementation of the Spanish manager’s ideologies and philosophies.

Thanks to this rekindled form and consequent rejuvenated performances, Frenkie De Jong finds himself nominated amongst 6 other talented players from La Liga Santander for the Player of the month award.

Since arriving in 2019, the man from Ajax has not hit highs as valiant as the ones he has this season. This ongoing system deployed at Barcelona utilizing the 4-man midfield structure has benefited the Dutchman substantially. Now being allowed more freedom and leverage, the player also has his double pivot role alongside Sergio Busquets to thank for allowing him this excessive free role utility.

Consequently, as a result of both his consistently brilliant performances and naturally fitted traits, the player now seems indispensable for Xavi Hernandez at FC Barcelona. As a result, he finds himself nominated for the first time for such an award, and this nomination in turn should be sufficient motivation for the player to continue in the same stride as he has done so all season thus far.

Organized by La Liga in collaboration with EA Sports, the player of the month award is subject to the 28 days of football that would have been played in February of 2023. Alongside the Dutchman, the other nominees for La Liga player of the month award are as follows:

  • 1: Frenkie de Jong ( FC Barcelona )
  • 2: Eduardo Camavinga ( Real Madrid )
  • 3: Sergio Canales ( Real Betis )
  • 4: Reinildo Mandava ( Atlético Madrid )
  • 5: Oihan Sancet ( Athletic Bilbao )
  • 6: Gabri Veiga ( Celta Vigo )
  • 7: Fran Garcia ( Rayo Vallecano )

The Barcelona midfielder remains amongst the favorites to win the award itself, having been vital in all 4 of the Catalan’s victories this month from all 4 league games that they played during the course of February.
