Barcelona teenage sensation Anssumane ”Ansu” Fati Vieira was born in Guinea-Bissau. He now plays for Spain national team after denouncing his Guinea citizenship last year. he recently made history in Camp Nou with two splendid goals. What’s even more exciting is both goals were assisted by Messi who happens to be his idol. Thanks to Messi, the youngster has become the youngest ever to score a two goals in a single match, in La Liga.
Fati’s two goals helped Barcelona win 2 – 1 against Levante at Camp Nou. This win means Barcelona is now three points ahead of their arch-rivals Real Madrid and they may be well-positioned to maintain the lead. With less than a month away until it’s time for the El Clasico, the race is getting pretty tight to come out on top and it would be interesting to see how this plays out.
Speaking on the victory in post-game reaction, Fati said, ”I want to keep improving and working to help the team the most”.
“I’ve been watching him [Messi] play for years. He’s incredible and sharing the pitch with him is a dream. I’ll always grateful.” he added.
Fati signed his first professional contract with Barcelona in July 2019, he agreed to a deal until 2022 and he may have a lot of playtimes since Suarez is injured.
Ansu Fati’s wages
According to reports, Fati is on a three-year deal and his wages will come in at roughly a million euros annually with a release clause of £88.5m.
Fati made his first-team debut a month after signing with Barcelona from Servila. He came on as a late-game substitute for goalscorer Carles Perez. They later won the game in a 5–2 home win over Real Betis. Soon after, the young lad scored his first professional goal just one week later in a 2-2 away draw against Osasuna.
Fatu is just a teenager and he is now Barcelona’s first team youngest goalscorer ever and the third-youngest scorer in the history of La Liga.
In December 2019, he became the youngest goalscorer in UEFA Champions League history at the age of 17 years. Fati scored a breathtaking goal over Inter Milan in their 2-1 victory at San Siro.
Barcelona will face Athletic Bilbao in the Copa del Rey quarterfinals on Thursday at San Mames Stadium in Bilbao, Spain and we should expect to see more of Fati.
