Ansu Fati’s father believes his son should leave FC Barcelona
The father of FC Barcelona player Ansu Fati, Bori Fati, assured that his son does not want to leave the Blaugrana club but that he thinks «something else» because of the lack of minutes and prominence of his son in Xavi Hernandez’s project.
«It bothers me is that Ansu plays so few minutes.»
«Ansu does not want to leave Barça, but as a father I think otherwise. What bothers me is that Ansu plays so few minutes, he deserves much more,» said Bori Fati in ‘El Partidazo de COPE’ with Juanma Castaño.
Of the meeting with the Blaugrana director of soccer, Mateu Alemany, he revealed that he told him that Ansu is «heritage of the club» and that Barça wants Ansu. «The first thing Ansu told Jorge Mendes was that he is Barça’s and he is not leaving Barça. I thought otherwise, but he told me ‘Dad, I don’t agree. I want to be here,'» the father explained.
Father will no longer attend Spotify Camp Nou
But so annoyed is Bori Fati with the current situation that he hinted that he would no longer attend the Spotify Camp Nou. «I’m not going to go to the field anymore, I’m very angry. A month from now we’ll see each other with Mendes, for sure. As a father I’m pissed off, but maybe I’m not right… Everyone knows who Mendes is. One or two years ago he told me he had offers and Bartomeu didn’t want to listen to them,» he recalled.
«We deserve so much more.»
«I think we deserve much more, because Ansu before he got injured was playing and there was Messi, Griezmann, Suarez… I have told Mateu (Alemany, director of soccer) ‘Ansu is your franchise player. He is the 10, the one who dared to take Messi’s 10’. What bothers me is that he plays so few minutes,» he reiterated.
Are you forgetting about him?
In this sense, he clarified that he does not ask Xavi to put Ansu «yes or yes». «But Ansu has been injured with Barça and has gone through this ordeal with Barça. Barça was in the doldrums and everyone wanted him to play. They rushed him back, and now what, they forget about him?» he wondered.
«Ansu is not displeased with Xavi Hernandez.»
However, he made it clear that his son’s position is different. «Ansu is not upset with Xavi, he’s always been his idol. I am angry as a father,» he stressed.
