That demonstrates the No. 10’s significance in Barcelona. Even though the forward, who is 19 years old, is still a young adult, he was one of the team’s more experienced players during the friendly. He hadn’t been able to play in a while, so he wanted to proceed with caution.

Ansu Fati’s full name is Anssumane Ansu Fati Vieira and he’s a Bissau-Guinean citizen but plays for the Spanish national football team as a forward.

Fati was born on the 31st of October 2002 (age 19) in Bissau, Guinea Bissau into the family of Bori Fati and Lurdes Fati.

Ansu Fati’s injury history

Fati has been one of the best players in the Barcelona senior team and is likely the next player to fully replace Lionel Messi’s legacy at FC Barcelona (if that is possible).

Amid such a tall dream, the 19-year-old has always struggled with his fitness as he usually gets injured.

Ansu Fati has missed more than 80 games for Barça because of injury. A mix of knee and hip issues hampered his early development but it was the Mensical Laceration in November 2020 that saw him miss 10 months of football.

Where’s Ansu Fati from?

Fati is originally from Bissau, Guinea Bissau, an African country. However, he moved to Seville when he was just six years old and started playing for the Sevilla youth team.
