De Jong: "When the Barça interest became real I asked Overmars, Ajax’s sporting director, about Barça and he told me if you get the chance you have to go there.
Johan Cruyff was just pure football. He was an amazing, talented football and great person.
I think the style of Barça and the style of Ajax are a bit similar. They both want to play good football, attack a lot, have a lot of possession."
