Ansu Fati was the leading protagonist of the Barça match against Inter in Milan, of the Champions League day and will be one of the names of the season in the continental competition. It is already part of the history of the tournament and its records have only just begun to build a legend around it. The international press, costumes and ex-players surrender to their exploits and talent and there are even those who venture to see Leo Messi’s successor in him.
The Italian newspaper has no qualms about opening its cover with the young attacker Culé and comparing it with the holder of six Golden Balls. Tuttosport bends before the squad for his performance in the crash at Giuseppe Meazza, he needed just a minute and means to mark, and because it has broken in several months several historical records. He is the youngest player in Barça to score a goal in LaLiga, to play a Champions League match with the Culé team and also the youngest player who signs somewhat in the continental competition: he has achieved it at age 17 and 40 days.
But Ansu Fati, whom Barça has rushed to renew and tie with a clause no less historic for his age: 170 million, collect praise from different places and football characters. His goal to Handanovic this Tuesday night has gone around the world. His fame is not reduced only to LaLiga.
English media and former players like Gary Likiner have also highlighted their feats. “Tonight, a little history was made in San Siro. Well played, Ansu Fati,” the former Barcelona soccer player wrote on his social networks. The British Press also praised him and some media related him, as in Italy, with Messi.
