La Liga

Throwback To When Ansu Fati Pulled The String In Barcelona, See Details.

Upset with the notion that La Masia will not be able to nurture talent like Leonel Messi, the hunt for an able successor was an immediate need for Football Club Barcelona with players like Bojan Krkic failing to live up to the La Masia hype, but somewhere down the road was Guinea's boy with the mind of a Spaniard, who comfortably change the notion of that no one could fit into the shoes of Leonel Messi and at long last, the wait was over.

It was on August the 25th 2019, exactly two years ago when the La Masia Academy graduate Ansu Fati made his La Liga debut to change the narrative of who will be replacing Rosario's talent now Paris Saint-Germain's favourite boy Leonel Messi, in a La Liga game against Real Betis that ended in a 5-2 win, with goal scorer Carles Perez leaving the field for the long-awaited heir to Camp Nou's throne.

Sharing the same dreams with former team Captain Leonel Messi is sent a sense of accomplishment for Barcelona's board on seeing the wonderful performance of the 16-year-old boy then, who by the sake of his La Liga debutant was the youngest starter in Camp Nou for Football Club Barcelona.

Beyond everyone and everything, when one's life ends, another begins(following the sudden departure of Leonel Messi to Paris Saint-Germain), and facing over 100.000 fans in Camp Nou, the chants will no longer be of Leonel Messi but of Ansu Fati who has shown how good he can be and just 18, and Ansu Fati can only do nothing but get better as he progresses in his career, though he has recently been sabotaged by injury thereby missing many La Liga games, but time will tell the tale well when the Spanish little get's back to action.
