Barcelona Believes the youngster is a player for the present
Clement Lenglet was full of praise for Ansu Fati as he discussed the teenager, although he did have one negative to say too.
Pointing to his age, the France international admitted that Fati can sometimes struggle to keep up with the rest of the squad.
“Ansu Fati has a lot of talent,” the defender said at a press conference.
“He is still very young, just 16 years of age, yet he shares a dressing room with players in his position who are international players.
“He made the most of some absences in attack and played very well.
“He does have some problems to keep up with the pace of training sessions and matches, but he takes care of himself a lot and he is really professional.
“It has been a great surprise.
“We’re happy with him and he’s a great player.
“He’ll be great for the future, but also for the present because he has so much quality.”
