Ansu Fati is the brightest gem in Barcelona’s current setup. The youngster’s potential and talent were the two main reasons why he got praise worldwide. The teenager came close to Erling Braut Haaland in the Golden Boy award, losing it by only a small margin.
The young gem won the Web Golden Boy award, as reported by Tuttosport. This award stems from the results of an online poll which is in itself part of the Golden Boy award. This prize shows just how much Fati has grown, and it comes just after winning the La Liga player of the month award earlier this year.
“I want to thank everyone who voted for me. I also want to congratulate Haaland on getting first place. He had a great year.”Ansu Fati | Barça TV+
“I’m still recovering, and I hope to be back as quick as possible.”
Fati’s humility will do him well for the rest of his career. If he can shake off his unfortunate injury, and keep his feet on the ground, he will become one of the world’s best. It is very likely that in a few years, Fati could win the Ballon d’Or.
Barcelona presidential candidate takes a jab at Madrid president, calls him VARentino Perez
The presidential elections are edging ever closer and the people are already picking their favourites. However, this battle has very much become a two-horse race and even calling it that is putting it quite mildly as well. Joan Laporta is, to many, the frontrunner for the position while Victor Font and Antoni Freixa are lagging far behind.
This is especially true for the latter who seems to stand no chance against two big names in the business. But Freixa is still trying and campaigning as well. One of his latest moves was actually taking a dig at both Real Madrid and his direct rivals.
Following in Laporta’s footsteps of mocking the Madridistas, according to AS‘ report, Freixa addressed Florentino Perez, Real’s president, as ‘VARentino’ in one of his slogans.
‘I will not allow VARentino to control LaLiga,’, read the slogan to be more precise. Of course, some socis will undoubtedly find this funny and appealing. After all, Laporta’s dig was well received in the community because Barcelona fans, and any other fans for that matter, like jabs like these that are aimed at their arch-rivals.
However, Freixa also took a dig at Laporta as well, calling him out for not attending the debate with himself and Font. Either way, we can safely say the tension is slowly but surely on the rise.
March is also rapidly approaching and the candidates are using all the aces they have up their sleeves. We still don’t know who will have the final say but at the same time, there are some indications suggesting there is a clear favourite after all.
We’ll just have to wait and see.
