As soon as Ronald Koeman took over the Barcelona first-team, Ansu Fati became the one player the world had eyes on. Ending his breakout season with an impressive seven goals and one assist in 24 appearances in the league, Fati was destined for great things, which became crystal-clear in right from the get-go in the 2020/21 season.
However, his progress was halted with an injury he picked up against Real Betis. The teenager was ruled out for no less than six months, and it seems the injury period might be extended.
That said, Fati is a motivated footballer, and will not let an injury get in the way of his dreams. He shared a post on Instagram, talking about a serious injury he suffered in the past, which went,
“A few years ago, I had a serious injury, a fractured tibia and fibula. I spent almost a year without being able to play. There were many days of suffering and pain, but also a lot of learning, and it helped me to appreciate the little details.”
He continued to talk about the same, explaining his recovery, “With my family and all the professionals who helped me at that time, I promised myself to keep going and work harder than ever to do what I like the most again.”
He linked it to his knee injury right now, and assured Barcelona fans worldwide that it is nothing but a roadblock in what is bound to be an incredible career:
“Unfortunately, now I have to be in a similar situation, which I will face with the same mentality. I want to thank all those people who follow me and support me on a daily basis. Football is my life and no matter how many obstacles there are, I will always have the illusion of continuing to fight for my dreams.”
