Having seen his career impacted to a high degree by his long term and recurring injuries, Ansu Fati is gradually working towards being 100% fit for his team. FC Barcelona had been taking a wary approach towards the young player, but new reports reveal that the player feels he is ready to be playing more often now.
Ansu Fati exploded onto the scene at a very young age, due to his maturity beyond his age, and his ability to finish difficult chances. These abilities allowed him to quickly become a star player for the Camp Nou faithful, who hoped to see him take the mantle of the team from Lionel Messi onwards.
However, his problems with injuries made things difficult for him, particularly his Mensical Laceration suffered in 2020 kept him out of action for 305 days, missing 47 games. Other minor problems in the knee and hamstring have also recurred frequently for the player.
These problems rang alarm bells in the FC Barcelona hierarchy, who started taking measures to ensure that the player was not being overworked, and was getting the most optimal atmosphere for his development.
However, latest reports suggest that latest tests on the player show that he is 100% fit. Fati himself also wants to prove himself both to Xavi and the fans, and get a prominent position in the team in the highly congested business end of the season.
The medical reports provide the club with a cause for optimism, as these showed increased agility, resistance to injuries, and an overall improvement in the shape for the player. It is now upon Xavi to decide on how to use Fati, as he is struggling for game time and manage the minutes of all the forward players present in the squad.
