Ansu Fati has had a terrible run with injuries that required many operations, but he is finally back to his best with Barcelona.
The club believed in him and offered him a lucrative new deal when he was still healing from significant knee injuries.
He certainly repaid their faith in last night’s 4-1 win over Real Sociedad. He scored the game-winning goal, but he also assisted on the second and third goals, which came at a moment when Barcelona really needed some inspiration.
However, Fati’s service in San Sebastian went far beyond goals.
Barcelona suffered a defeat in this game. They were drawing, and there was no music playing.
He made an immediate impression with a magnificent back-heel assist for Ousmane Dembele after only two minutes. It was his first touch that handed Barcelona the lead once more.
He added his second assist two minutes later. The receiver this time was Robert Lewandowski, and the Pole is one of those who never fails to put the game to bed.
Real Sociedad could no longer react and knew the game was getting away from them. Fati was still waiting to put the cherry on top.
The Pole returned the assist, putting him alone in front of Alex Remiro, whom he defeated softly.
