16-Year Old Barcelona Star Ansu Fati Is Ruled Out Of Inter Game Due To Growing Pains

16-Year Old Barcelona Star Ansu Fati Is Ruled Out Of Inter Game Due To Growing Pains

16-year old Ansu Fati is unable to play for Barcelona against Inter Milan this evening because he is suffering from growing pains.

In the opening round of Champions League fixtures, Fati became the Barcelona's youngest ever Champions League player at 16 years and 321 days when he started the 0-0 draw with Borussia Dortmund at Signal Iduna Park.

But according to Fernando Polo from Mundo Deportivo, Fati is unavailable for selection at the Nou Camp tonight for the visit of Inter as he is experiencing discomfort in his right knee - the pain directly related to Fati's growth.

Growing pains are a normality when we're going through puberty but not many 16-year old's are playing first-team football with the mighty Barcelona when they are suffering from them.

He's been extremely impressive in his five outings thus far, scoring two goals after being fast-tracked into the first-team. But Barca are wary of burning him out and so won't overexpose him.

Fati recently signed a three-year contract at the Blaugrana and has a €100 million release clause in his deal.

Incredibly, he's so young that Barcelona had to ask his parents' permission for him to make his debut because of La Liga's restrictions on under age players appearing in night games.

Fortunately for him, his mum and dad were more than happy for him to take to the field in a 5-2 victory over Real Betis.
