Barca Star Deletes Cryptic Tweet After Backlash

After taking to social media following the sacking of Ernesto Valverde at FC Barcelona, a Blaugrana star was forced to delete a post when he received heavy backlash.

New Barca Coach Is Die-Hard Messi Fan

Dutch midfielder Frenkie de Jong was a regular under Valverde, who was relieved of his duties in the early hours of Tuesday morning, a few days after losing to Atletico Madrid in semi-finals of the Spanish Super Cup.

The 22-year-old, however, ruffled some feathers hours after his former manager's sacking when he took to social media outlet Twitter to post a picture of himself along with a caption that read "back to training mode", according to BeSoccer.

De Jong's message was seen as a cryptic response to Valverde being fired and replaced with Quique Setien, although it might be a stretch to assume the former Ajax Amsterdam star was intentionally aiming a jibe at his ex-boss.

It has been claimed that the midfielder received a lot of negative feedback from his followers and Barcelona supporters on Twitter, with the player eventually deleting the post to prevent further backlash.

De Jong arrived at the Camp Nou from Ajax at the beginning of the season, although the two clubs reached an agreement for his transfer in January 2019.
