The midfielder blames the board for his potential exit last summer.
Frenkie de Jong has never spoken about his episode this summer when he came close to leaving Barça. And in an interview with 'The European Lad', the player made it clear that it was the board who pushed him towards it.
"I blame these people (those who wanted him out), but I have nothing to do with them. Yes, for me they are Barça because they run Barça," the midfielder said emphatically.
The Dutchman went further and said he has no relationship with the Blaugrana board: "I don't see them when I'm at the club during my daily routine.
The midfielder did want to exonerate Xavi from the whole episode that took place this summer when Barça were negotiating with Manchester United.
"It is true that Xavi left the door open to the possibility of my departure because he never said 'Frenkie is staying'. But I don't blame Xavi. I never had the feeling that Xavi was against me and I think it was difficult for him to talk about all this."
And finally, De Jong issued a big statement to quench rumours about his future: "I'm very happy in Barcelona. When I play it's great and in terms of living here life is perfect. I see myself at Barça. I see myself here for eight or ten more years.
