As believed by every Barcelona and football fans around the world, Lionel Messi who was guided by the legendary Gaucho Ronaldinho when the former was still a young footballer years ago, would guide and see the Barcelona revelation Ansumane Fati towards attaining heights.
According to Ansu’s father and agent Bori Fati, he expects the Argentine star man to lead his son the same way Ronaldinho had done for him.
” Messi is Ansu’s football father. There is no one like him. If one finds himself next to him, one has to thank God ” Bori Fati told cadena SER
” Fati has to take advantage of every minute and enjoy being with the best players in the world. He is lucky to play with them.”
The Barcelona captain has in fact formed a bond with the youngster and as you may remember, he even congratulated Fati on his debut against Real Betis back in August with a picture of him hugging the youngster after the match.
Both players have had a great bond even on the pitch. It was especially evident in the home match against Levante when the Spainiard scored twice from Leo Messi’s assists.
Although the 17 year old has been getting less playing time recently- however, his father sees no problem with that especially considering the strength of Barcelona’s squad.
” Ansu doesn’t really have to be a starter. we are talking about Barcelona here, it’s not Alaves, Mallorca, or any other club. Barcelona are much bigger. There is still a long, long way to go to learn and gain experience. we owe Barcelona a lot ! I can’t imagine not being at Barca.” Bori said.
