Antonella Rocuzzo and some Barcelona teammates aren’t going to be happy at all with Frenkie de Jong’s girlfriend’s latest comments, as the teenager apparently has a lot to say about Lionel Messi.
De Jong is set to join the Catalan squad next season after completing a dream move away from his childhood club Ajax and is now one of the most promising midfielders in the world.
However, it looks like his girlfriend Mikky Kiemeney is even more excited than him about his move to the Catalan capital, as she allegedly thinks “Lionel Messi is the other hottest player in the world after de Jong”.

When asked about another soccer player that she’d pick other than his sweetheart, the influencer didn’t hesitate to let everybody know about his love for the Argentinean:
“Messi. I think Frenkie would be proud of me if I said Messi,” she claimed (as quoted by Spanish outlet AS).
Shortly after, the teenager went on to clarify that there’s no disrespect at all about this and that Messi has been de Jong’s idol for quite some time.
We all know Antonella Rocuzzo is a bit jealous regarding the 6-time Golden Boot winner, so she’s not going to like those comments at all, and perhaps she won’t even be invited to the Christmas dinners at Messi’s house.
As for his boyfriend, the Blaugrana expect him to carry Sergio Busquets’ torch once the Spaniard is gone and trust him to run the midfield at Camp Nou for many years to come.
De Jong’s excellent ability to read the game in defense and even take the ball up front when needed makes him a top prospect right now, and the Catalans would love to put the icing on top of the cake by also securing his former teammate and beloved friend Matthijs de Ligt.
