Ansu Fati: Barcelona Record Breaking Lad

Ansu Fati is a record-breaker. At just 16 years and 318 days, the lad born in Guinea-Bissau has already had the experts rifling through the record books. After becoming the youngest ever goalscorer in the league two weeks ago against

Osasuna , he set more records during Barça’s 5-2 win over Valencia at Camp Nou .

The first of the records to fall came before even a ball had been kicked when the Barça number 31 was named in the starting XI. Thus, Ansu Fati became the youngest ever Barça player to be in the starting XI for a game at Camp Nou, beating Marc Muniesa’s record set in 2009.

Only Vicenç Martínez was younger in the first XI home and away when he featured at 16 years and 280 days in a Clásico against Real Madrid in 1941.

The best was yet to come as in just the second minute of the game Ansu Fati scored his first-ever goal at Camp Nou. Five minutes later he was back in the thick of the action when he created an assist for Frenkie de Jong to score his first goal for the club. As such, the striker became the youngest player to score and create an assist in the history of La Liga. A record for the ages.

His goal also means he becomes the youngest ever goalscorer at Camp Nou from any team. Remember the name, Ansu Fati as more records are bound to fall.

The 16-year-old marked his first Barca start with a goal and an assist inside seven minutes at Camp Nou on Saturday, adding to his maiden strike against Osasuna before the international break.

It made Fati the youngest player to score and assist in a single LaLiga game in the 21st century.

However, Barcelona manager Ernesto Valverde lauded the teenager – who has scored two LaLiga goals for Barca – for his performance,

saying it was beyond expectations .

“He is a player who has something special. For his age it seems that he is more mature, ”

“What you see in training is what you see here. Today was something exaggerated – goal, give one assist and almost score another.”

Fati set up Barca’s victory before a second-half goal from Gerard Pique and Luis Suarez brace lifted Valverde’s side onto seven points from four LaLiga games.
