The father is pissed off but he didn't say anything that was off the charts. Fati is not performing and he also looks lazy and disinterested. Best we move Fati along and please his father too.
Even though I still love and defend Dembele, this kid is something special. If we'd actually start really trusting him, Dembele could be in big trouble. Fati is pretty much a mini Dembele, but with actual ball control, great timing and movement, and of course having the technique (good first touch), that a Barca player should have, to go with his blistering pace and quick feet, which are Dembele's best qualities.
It just goes to show you that we pretty much have almost everyone we need (at least profile wise) in La Masia, who are much more better suited to our style than an outsider could ever be. And even if they are not world class yet, we just gotta start trusting La Masia again. With minutes and opportunities they become world class. While all the ingredients are pretty much already there in them for everyone to see, even in 15 minute cameos you can see the quality just oozing out. That goes for both Riqui and now for Fati. It's the little things they do on the pitch, you just see they're made for this team.
Sadly with this Board and Valverde the reality is, that this will be the only appearance for him this season, once Messi, Suarez and Dembele are all back. And we'll probably look to loan him to Getafe or wherever in 1-2 years, even though he and Puig could play regular minutes in La Liga and Copa already. The only hope is the new Board in 2021, willing to go back to our ways and roots, trusting La Masia. Fati will be what, 18 by then? Should be up for promotion by then, if he keeps his head down, keeps performing and avoids any tough injuries.
Barca?s ?franchise? player, wouldn?t rule out Real Madrid and thinks Bayern would notice him following them on Social Media.
He needs a reality check. Yes he?s been very unfortunate with injuries but let?s be honest, he?s hardly shown anything in several games to warrant selection.
Hey, if Fati father manages to bring up interest in European big clubs, then I'm all for it.
Fati is just 20, and has more to give of course. Said from the start that this is a season to be patient with him, and now it seems that comment refers to his father.
But put it this way, if he was performing as bad as Ferran Torres but showing Ferran Torres effort, then I would say keep him, because we know he can raise his level of play (unlike Ferran). But the fact that he is not putting in the effort in even 15-20 minute cameos and giving it all says we have to give very serious thought about letting him go.
And this insider feeling that his amount of minutes is undeserved is just the icing.
Bori Fati (Ansu's father): "Ansu wants to continue at Bar?a. I, as a father, think otherwise." [cope] #fcblive
Bori: "I have recommended to Ansu a change of scenery. He doesn't agree."
"Why doesn't Xavi play him more?" Bori Fati asked. "I don't have an answer. We're talking about the number 10 of Barca."
Not the brightest this one
His father is a terrible influence.
