Xavi accused for rude behaviour towards Ansu Fati

Youngster

Barcelona officials have reportedly met with the father of Ansu Fati this week. They discussed the forward’s situation at the Camp Nou amidst rumors of a possible sale in the upcoming summer transfer window.

According to a report, Ansu Fati’s father, Bori Fati, has had a meeting with Barcelona officials to discuss his son’s future at the club. Bori Fati stated that Ansu does not want to leave Barcelona. But he expressed his unhappiness with the striker’s current role at the club. He also accused Barcelona’s manager Xavi of showing a “lack of respect” towards Ansu and not giving him enough playing time.

According to the report, the family is of the opinion that Xavi’s treatment of Fati is unjust. They see leaving Barcelona as the only viable option if his situation does not improve. They also believe that Xavi lacks respect towards their son and does not understand his limited playing time. Fati has started only nine La Liga games this season and has not scored in the league since October 2022. As a result, his transfer value has dropped significantly from €80 million to just €35 million.

Can Ansu Fati rediscover his golden days?

Ansu Fati made a sensational debut for Barcelona in 2019. He seemed destined for greatness, but his career has been plagued by a series of injuries. These hampered his progress and prevented him from reaching his full potential. Despite showing flashes of brilliance when he has played, he has struggled to stay fit and find consistency in his performances.

Barcelona is to play their next match against Elche on Saturday, April 1, following the recent international break. Elche currently sits at the bottom of La Liga, making this a match that Barcelona’s strikers will likely look forward to. There is a good chance that Fati could be given a rare opportunity to start the match. Since Ousmane Dembele is still in injury and Raphinha is in suspension.
