Ansu Fati offered the intensity and faith that was missing to other players like Luis Suárez and Antoine Griezmann, very little inspired in Los Cármenes in search of reduce distances against Granada
The freshness that contributes Ansu Fati to the forward of the FC Barcelona is not an echo of his first performances, in which it dazzled to base of dribblings, goals and assistances. No, it is a reality. Because, although it accumulates two consecutive parties without marking -Dortmund and Granada-, in both duels was of the little salvable of the Barça, encarando one and again and looking for always the best option for the interests of his team.
This Saturday jumped to the terrain of game in the second part against the Granada, to the equal that Leo Messi, to try give depth and tarpaulin to the team in attack. The group nazarí defended with nails and teeth and, although Ansu Fati knew to open spaces in the left band, receiving hit to the line of cal for afterwards try confine in the area, his apparitions no surtieron effect.
It fixed to defenders, generated small spaces so that ssu mates could arm the shot and tried also some one against one that, unfortunately, did not go out. The nazaríes knew to make fast coverages to avoid the disequilibrium of Ansu Fati, and even so the Spanish player of guinean origin hoarded in a lot of occasions the attention of the defence.
Ansu Fati Has only 16 years, but knows to read the game as if it carried already a lot of years playing in the elite. When accelerate, when brake and look for to a mate... This Saturday went back to show that it has purchased a maturity futbolística inaudita for somebody of his age, thing that will allow him follow explaining for Ernesto Valverde in the first team.
The 'Txingurri' already left clear that his apparitions -and the ones of Carles Pérez- do not owe only to the plague of injuries that azotaba to the team in the line of attack up to now, but also to the qualities that these two canteranos can offer in the first team. Like this the things, the likely course of Ansu Fati in October to contest the World-wide Sub-17 could be a serious setback for the Barça.
It is necessary to follow taking care to Ansu Fati in the Barça
For the moment, and while it follow playing like this, will have ensured the minutes. And it will give the same that it recover Dembélé and grow the competition, because the jovencísimo attacker culé is winning his opportunities to pulse. It has not cost 120 million euros like Antoine Griezmann, and neither has the weight of other attackers like Luis Suárez in the staff.
It gives off, this yes, the illusion and motivation that to the veterans is missing them. That touch of wand that only the big jewels of the football, as he and does some years Kylian Mbappé, can offer. The Barça has the big to have to to follow boosting his progression. Because, if it does it, can have him fallen of the sky one of these diamonds by those who other big clubs of Europe pay hundreds of millions.
