Calendar of FC Barcelona

On 25 August 2019 it is marked in the memory of all the followers of the FC Barcelona. In that date and with the '31' to the back, Ansu Fati jumped to the terrain of game for the first time like player of the first team blaugrana. In front of the Real Betis, the canterano of the Farm turned into the second debutante barcelonista younger of the League with only 16 years, 9 months and 25 days and dazzled to all and sundry with his 'electricity' and his grandísima quality.

The bisauguineano nationalised Spanish followed breaking records and so alone six days afterwards went back to write his name in the historical books of the League. Going out from the bench in front of the Osasuna in the Sadar, Fati premièred like goleador in the entity culé, being the most precocious player of the history of the Barça in marking a goal in the national championship. Like this then , Ansu culminated the season 2019-2020 with a global of 8 goals in 33 parties and the illusion of the birth of a new 'star' in the club.

The forward seemed touched by a 'magic wand' and like this began the following campaign. With Ronald Koeman like new trainer of the Catalan square, the 'jewel' of 17 years split like headline and everything aimed to that Messi had to his side to his successor. However, after 10 parties in which it celebrated 5 so many and delivered 2 assistances, the player saw like all his evolution suffered a 'frenazo' sudden when breaking the internal meniscus of his left knee.

After going through the operating theatre until 4 times, the attacker sacked of the season and put the look in the 21-22, that in which it did charge of the '10' of Messi. Nevertheless, the destination was not very distinct. After returning with the already begun League, on 6 November Ansu received a new 'varapalo'. In Balaídos, lesionó the isquio of his left leg, being two months in the dry dam. It went back by an instant, but in front of the Athletic in the Glass a new setback in the same biceps femoral supposed a very hard 'blow' for the footballer, that decided not going through the operating theatre and opt by a conservative treatment that forced him to be 3 months separated of the fields of football.

A return 'timorato'

Like this then , and with all his physical problems left backwards, Ansu returned to the first team in research to recover feelings. In spite of this, the one of Bisáu only has been headline in 1 of the 8 parties contested by the club. In the 7 remaining always has gone out of the bench, playing a maximum of 30 minutes by meeting and being the leading second less used by Xavi, only by in front of Memphis. This fault of minutes is tied in the long run inactivity lived by the '10', that only has been able to form part of 15 parties of the 45 possible (any complete) from his injury in front of the Celtic, one only like titling (in front of the Plzen this season).

From the club have opted for acting with extreme prudence, since the injury of the isquios is very frequent in activities relate to esprintar or fast accelerations, basic exercises in a footballer. Thus, in the entity have elaborated a plan for 'apuntalar' the tuned of Fati in this stop of selections. In the same, the player has worked in the strength of the muscle weakened, in the career to high speed and in a load of training in the field to strengthen his mental and physiological concentration, in addition to the medical attention and physiotherapy, the nutrition and the recovery post-split.

The key of his follow-up

In this sense, so much Xavi like his staff technical support in a GPS to the hour to decide on the participation of Ansu in the team. This tool offers cientos of individual data and communities that allow to manage the physicist of the footballer, values that determine the way to be followed with the canterano so much in the trainings as in the parties. Of this way, has required that Fati is physically almost ready but his speed still has margin of improvement, reason whereby his return has demorado.

The possible change of position

Now, the footballer looks for accommodate inside his limitations. When it plays by band, sees him with little confidence to the hour of desbordar and look for the 1 vs 1, reason whereby have been born the doubts regarding his position in the field. Ansu Has showed to feel very comfortable playing inside, and the physical wear that supposes to do charge of an extreme in attack is unfeasible for a lacking player of rhythm and intesidad to loom to his rival along the 90 minutes.

Thus, it is not descabellado think that the forward faces a way of reconversion that could change it of the band to the centre of the offensive, where could explode all his qualities. His big hit, his intuisión, his capacity asociativa and his intelligence could turn him into the '9' of the future. Although it is missing time to clear which will be the future of a footballer of hardly 19 years, the feelings go through an Ansu '9'. In the meantime, so much the club like Xavi and all the fans follow trusting his return, which is increasingly near and that generates illusion in the barcelonismo.
