Ansu Fati (21 years old) is making strides in his recovery to once again be the future of Spanish football. The striker took another step this weekend in his long-awaited return to the elite. An important leap back to the Olympus is reserved for a few world stars who will dominate football in the coming years. Ansu made his Premier League debut with Brighton. The Spaniard started in Roberto De Zerbi’s starting lineup. A reward for the good level shown by Ansu in recent matches. He was unable to get all three points for his team, but Ansu played 71 minutes.
Positive progress although it is still a long way from that impressive debut Ansu had at Barcelona before a dreaded meniscus left him in the dry dock for too long. Ansu is moving slowly but surely on this loan at Brighton. During the week, in the Europa League, he excelled in the victory over Ajax with a goal and an assist and earned this title even more. Against Sheffield, he played at a good level, but Brighton suffered almost throughout the second half with ten players due to Daoud’s expulsion and was unable to overcome the tie. For the third time in a row, De Zerbe’s team is exposed to a mini-crisis.
A downturn that could have been more serious had it not been for Ansu. He had to get space by acting as a catalyst in the final half against City, Fulham and Everton and he did so admirably. He even made his debut as a top scorer in the English Premier League against Citizens. He is now a regular starter and looks happier on the pitch. On June 30, he should return to Barcelona, with whom he has a contract until 2027, and will sit down with Xavi to talk about his future.
