Christmas has finally arrived! For Barcelona, it goes without saying that it’s been a tough year to handle with changes in management, sacking of the president, poor results and heartbreaks. However, there is optimism in the camp once again and it’s all about the youth players.
Both papers are in a festive mood this morning and Mundo Deportivo bring exclusive interviews with two of Barcelona’s big stars: Ansu Fati for the men’s team and Jennifer Hermoso for the women’s team.
Hermoso is the highest goal-scorer in the club’s history while Fati is the emerging superstar and La Masia’s finest. Both players are and will be key for Barcelona’s success in 2021 as well but they have the strength to shoulder that burden.
SPORT are also focusing on one of Barcelona’s young starlets, Pedri. Lately, especially after Fati’s injury, the now 18-year-old midfielder has taken the stage by storm with his brilliant performances.
The paper says Pedri is Barcelona’s Christmas gift and it truly feels that way. Not only has his connection with Lionel Messi gotten extremely good but he’s also elevating the whole team in the best possible way.
So even though there’s still a lot to go for the Catalans, there is hope that 2021 could still be a good year for the club and the fans.
