How Barca Shut Off Possible Pressures That May Arise from Ansu Fati Wearing Jersey No. 10

Barcelona have done remarkable works as they have laid off the perceived pressures that may be mounted on Ansu Fati following his new Shirt Number at the Club. 

Sometimes, it is perceived a superstitious belief that certain shirt umbers are tagged as being 'iconic' and are therefore given special recognitions. These numbers are usually perceived as 'heavy' because of the wonderful impacts of previous players who have worn them. 

For example, the highly rated Number 7 Shirt Number at Manchester United is given special recognitions because one of the most decorated players on the planet, Cristiano Ronaldo has worn it during his first spell at the club. 

During his first stay at Old Trafford, he was able to build outstanding records and such wonderful achievements have not been witnessed since the Portuguese international left the club in 2009. 

This is also the same in the case of his arch-rival, Lionel Messi when he was Barcelona. The 6-Time Ballon D'or Winner performed outstandingly well wearing the Number 10 Jersey at Camp Nou.

With previous legendary players of the club like Ronaldinho and Rivaldo also wearing this number when they were at Camp Nou, this shirt number has now been seen as a significant number which is majorly designed for world-class players. 

Players who wish to wear this Number will definitely prepare themselves for improved performances every season as more will be expected from them. This will also in turn lead to corresponding pressures from the club fans as more will be expected from them. 

However, Barcelona have done remarkable works as they adopted a strategy to lay off the expected pressures on Ansu Fati despite being confirmed as a player that will now be wearing Lionel Messi's Shirt Number.

They decided not to allocate it to senior players like Coutinho, Memphis Depay, Ousmane Dembele. They therefore gave it to Fati because he is very young player who is still in the process of development. He is an academy product of the club's La Masia, and he is believed to be one of the next potential world-class youngsters that will take over the footballing world in the coming years. 

Less will be expected from him, especially since he is just returning from a long-term ruptured meniscus injury.
