Ansu Fati, a future as a centre-forward for Barcelona - SPORT
Ansu Fati played 30 minutes against Elche in Barça's last match, coming on for Memphis Depay. He started on the wing, receiving four balls (61', 71', 88' and 89') and in none of them did he try to beat a man one-on-one. In these situations you have to change your rhythm and look for the limits of your muscles and the Barça striker preferred to continue the play with a short pass, backwards.
