10 Times Fans Have Fell Out With Their Own Player

It’s not uncommon for fans to be abusive to rival players during games but for home supporters to be abusive towards their own player there must have been a falling out between the two. Here are 10 times fans have fallen out with their own player. 10.

Barcelona Threaten Legal Action Against De Jong and Want Him to Revert to Previous Contract

Barcelona have reportedly found evidence of criminality in Frenkie De Jong’s contract, and are eager for the Dutchman to revert back to his previous previous arrangement.

Frenkie De Jong, who has been heavily linked with the exit this summer, is keen to remain at the Nou Camp despite the club reportedly open to selling him. With the Blaugrana still unable to register the influx of new signings until they balance their wage bill, De Jong’s sale would command both a substantial transfer fee as well as cutting £470,000-a-week off their salary commitments. However, it now seems as if the current board are ...
