Although Ansu Fati – the Spanish player of Guinean origins – the Barcelona striker will turn 18 next month, he has presented his credentials as an extraordinary ambassador to Barca this season.
And within only two matches, he sent a message to the fans that he was the next star in the Blaugrana, and with time he would become the most prominent player.
The prominence and talent prompted Dutch coach Ronald Koeman to openly declare that “Fati comes before Dembele (Osman),” although the latter had cost the Barca Treasury 3 years ago 105 million euros and 40 additions.
Dembele scored 3 goals in two games, topping the scorers’ list, although his team played fewer matches than most of the League teams.
What is striking about Fati is that he needs a few attempts to hit the net and does not waste many opportunities, as his three goals came from the three shots that he aimed towards the goal.
The numbers reveal that Fati scored 11 goals in the current and last seasons, from 17 shots on goal, with an amazing rate for a young player reaching 64.8%.
But what worries the fans is that the player achieved all these numbers and did not reach the age of 18 years, which is why there are demands to protect him and guide him so that his level does not decline. He repeats the mistakes of players whose beginnings were fiery and their talents are visible, and they went unheeded.
On this, Coman said and repeated by Sergio Busquets, that the player needs to be informed and taken care of on the psychological and social levels.
It is noteworthy that the player – who participated in his first matches with the first team at the age of 26 – increased the penalty clause in his contract to 400 million euros, and negotiations to renew his contract will start this season.
