2 Reasons Ansu Fati Might Not Deliver On Lionel Messi's No 10 Jersey

Barcelona has reached an agreement that the young star Ansu Fati should take over the Iconic jersey number 10 recently vacated by their former captain Leonel Messi. Barcelona could not retire the No 10 shirt because of La Liga rules which stipulate that the 25 term players must wear jerseys No1-25. The Wonder kid just returned from injury can he replicate Messi's achievements, well let's wait and see. The following are the two reasons he might not perform well in the iconic shirt.

1. High Expectations: there is always a great expectation on Barcelona player who wears Jersey number 10 because of the comparisons usually associated with it. Many Barcelona legends have worn the famous number 10 Jersey in the past with great achievements, they include Maradona, Ronaldinho, Rivaldo, Romario, etc, and of course Lionel Messi who just vacated the shirt. No doubt, Ansu Fati is a very good player with great potential, nonetheless, it will be difficult for him to match Lionel Messi's records because of high expectations. Also, his age might not be able to withstand the pressure.

2. Injury: this is another factor that could affect Ansu Fati's performance, he has been out injured for about one year now, and as such, his fitness is not guaranteed.
