Ansu Fati's Individual Highlights For Barcelona Prove He's The Real Deal

Ansu Fati only played 15 minutes against Villarreal on Tuesday night, but he made a huge impression with his individual highlights making for an incredible viewing.


Fati, 16, starred for Barcelona in their 2-1 league victory over Villarreal at the Camp Nou.

He replaced Luis Suarez in the 78th minute with Spanish outlets claiming the youngster did more than his Uruguayan teammate after entering the fray.

Fati cut a composed figure, showed positive intent and created chances in the final third.

Marca spoke glowingly about Fati following his cameo appearance.

"He arrived in the 78th minute against Villarreal for Luis Suarez, who had disappointed and was whistled on his departure, and he showed more in 15 minutes on the pitch than Suarez, Antoine Griezmann and Lionel Messi had, combined, all night," they wrote.

Lionel Messi was impressed by what he saw in Fati's first training session with the full-team, and he's also called on the club to aid his development.

"Ansu Fati got my attention from the first time I saw him training, but you have to go step by step because he is 16 years old.

"He still doesn't have the responsibility that others want to put on his shoulders. He has the potential to be a very important player, but we have to help him."

Ansu Fati. Remember the name.
