Barcelona has one of the best academies in the world. The La Masia academy is considered to be the best place for budding talents since the Catalan coaches really know how to transform young talents into star players. Many players who revolutionized the game have been from this academy. Players like Lionel Messi, Andreas Iniesta, Xavi Hernandez, Carles Puyol are all from Barca’s academy and their latest star player has to be Ansu Fati. The Spanish youngster shocked the world with his talent and he was even given the number ten shirt by Barca after Messi left. He is one talented player that is for sure but injuries are holding him back.
The player first started showing his prowess under Quique Setien and he had a brilliant start under Ronald Koeman as well. His performances at the beginning of the last season were so good that Barca immediately locked him to the club with a better contract and huge release clause. However, that is when things took a fall, as he got injured and missed almost the entire season. His 2021/22 season also started out in a promising fashion but he got a hamstring injury and was out for six months.
Ansu Fati could return to Barcelona soon after recovering from his injury
The player returned to the field against Real Madrid in the Supercopa de Espana and he even scored a goal. However, in the next match against Athletic Bilbao, he suffered the same hamstring injury and this time doctors recommended him to go through surgery. He refused to do so and chose a more conventional method instead. According to Achraf Ben Ayad, the player is now in Madrid but he will return to Barca soon to start training again. However, Xavi must use him wisely as he cannot put too much pressure on the young lad. It is expected that the manager will ease him back into the team.
