Barcelona teenager Ansu Fati was full of gratitude after making his debut in Sunday’s 5-2 win over Real Betis at the Camp Nou on Sunday.

The 16-year-old trained with the first team during the week but was still a surprise inclusion in Ernesto Valverde’s matchday squad.

Yet it got even better for the teenager when he replaced Carles Perez to become the club’s second youngest debutante in the club’s glittering history.

Ansu Fati offered his thoughts on a crazy week in his career after the match.

“The truth is that I was very nervous but I only have words of thanks to everyone, the club, the coach and the fans, who have received me very well.

“I looked at my parents, my family, who are the ones who have accompanied me to get here. Now it’s time to enjoy the moment and insist that I only have words of thanks.”
