Van Basten slams Barcelona over De Jong treatment: Cruyff would be ashamed

Dutch great Marco van Basten has slammed Joan Laporta's Barcelona.

Van Basten is upset seeing Barca's president pressure Frenkie de Jong to leave the club.

De Jong is also in dispute with Barca over outstanding wages he is owed.

Van Basten said on Ziggo Sport: "I think that Johan Cruyff would have been ashamed to see how Barça behaved today.

"In my opinion, Barcelona's behavior has been far below their standards."
