Barcelona's Franck Kessie Sent Ansu Fati Flying Into A New Dimension In Training

Barcelona new signing Franck Kessie has wasted no time in applying himself in training after sending Ansu Fati flying in a viral clip.

After securing the services of Kessei on a four-year deal and finally registering him, the Ivorian midfielder made his debut in the first friendly against Olot and joined Barca on their tour of the United States.

The Blaugrana haven't played their first game across the pond just yet but Kessie has been taking training very seriously.

In a clip doing the rounds on social media, his team lost possession and the ball was played into Fati by Frenkie de Jong.

Barca's No.10 has struggled with injuries in recent times and you'd think some of the players would be taking it easy on their starboy in training.

Kessie clearly didn't get the memo, however, and bundled Fatu over - knocking him to the floor. No foul was given and play continued, with Fatu getting up and trying to win the ball back.

But Barca fans expressed some concerns with Kessie's antics and reckon he needs to calm down a bit:


The Cules won't be complaining at all though if he does it to Real Madrid players in next season's El Clasico.

A recent report from SPORT says Kessie has made a huge impression in Barca training since joining the club.

It's said manager Xavi Hernandez has been "positively surprised" by the former Atalanta midfielder, who has been extremely tidy on the ball and in tight spaces - a necessity for any Barca player.

Barca's first friendly in the US will see them come up against David Beckham's Inter Miami on 20 July, before they play huge fixtures against Real Madrid and Juventus - finishing up with a game against New York Red Bulls on 31 July.

Preparations for the new season will be finalised with the annual Joan Gamper trophy game at the Nou Camp, where Mexico's UNAM are the opponents.
