Ansu Fati has returned to the Barcelona football team after a 10-month absence due to a knee injury.
And Fati, 18, was chosen from a squad of 20 players selected by coach Ronaldo Koeman in view of the challenge in program on Sunday against Levante in the seventh phase of the Spanish league.
Fati hasn’t been in a Barcelona match for 322 days, having injured his left knee meniscus during the match that ended with Barcelona’s 5-2 victory over Real Betis last November. Fati, after having undergone three surgeries, returned to training last August.
The match tomorrow, in program at the “Camp Nou” stadium, constitutes an opportunity for Fati to register his first official participation as it has been announced that he will wear the number “10” jersey worn by the Argentine champion Lionel Messi, who left for the German Paris Saint.
Fati scored two goals in two games against Levante in championship, and scored more goals only against Villarreal (three goals) in championship.
Fati became the youngest scorer in Barcelona history when he scored against Osasuna in August 2019, when he was 16 years and 304 days old. Then Fati scored another 12 goals in 42 games in all competitions with Barcelona, which he joined since he was ten.
Fate, born in Guinea-Bissau, made four caps for the Spanish national team and scored his first goal in against Ukraine in September 2020. Barcelona’s goalless draw with Cadiz on Saturday increased the pressure on Koeman, and according to media the president of club Juan Laporta is looking to appoint Belgian Roberto Martinez as team manager to succeed Koeman.
Barcelona have achieved two wins and three draws in the prime five league games of the team in this season and are seven points behind leaders Real Madrid, knowing Real have played six games so far.
