Last news Ansu Fati
FC Barcelona players, Arthur Melo and Ansu Fati, could not exercise in the last training session this Friday before the game against Mallorca and are doubtful to play in the game.
There are men like Lionel Messi, Luis Suarez, Koke or Saul who have experienced the thrill of a match between Atletico and Barcelona numerous times. There are others, such as Joao Felix or Ansu Fati, who don't yet know what it feels to be a part of such a momentous occasion. It's time for the youngsters to get their turn.
17-year-old FC Barcelona striker Ansu Fati, is still being watched closely by Luis Enrique on his return to coaching the Spanish national team. He stated that "the doors are always open", but spoke about a "slow maturation process" and the need for the player to first triumph in the inferior categories in Spain.
Whilst Patrick Kluivert sees it best that Ansu Fati plays in the Barca B team if he is not going to have any minutes in the first team, the decision falls to Ernesto Valverde, who sees a more than valid player in him.
Patrick Kluivert, in charge of the formative football at Barcelona, underwent an interview with official media of the club to speak about La Masia. Inevitably, Ansu Fati's name came into the limelight and the person in charge was full of praise for him.
Robert Moreno is already considering the prospect of taking Ansu Fati to the Euro 2020 finals.
Ansu Fati climbed a step in the Barcelona team. The promising, young Barcelona striker spent his childhood in the youth squad, but at the moment, there are no plans to make him a first team signing.
The Camp Nou's patience could be measured in the change Valverde made in the 65th minute when he withdrew an unwise Dembele to give way to the new golden boy of the squad, Ansu Fati. The Frenchman was jeered away.
La Masia was formed 40 years to the day this Sunday as Barcelona's academy as well as a residence for players who are from outside Barcelona.
Former football player Denilson spoke about the newest crown jewel of LaLiga and warned that his irruption should not make everyone that happy, also taking the chance to speak about fellow Brazilians Rodrygo and Vinicius, stating people should keep patience with them, but "they must start thinking more quickly".
The 16 year-old striker became the second youngest player in history to make his debut for Spain, in this case with the U21s. Only Bojan made it earlier and Fati was close to doing something in the 15 minutes he was on the pitch.
