Elegantly dressed and accompanied by all his family Ansu Fati celebrated in front of the press his renewal at FC Barcelona until 2027 with an eye on in next Sunday’s game against Real Madrid, that the young Barcelona forward faces with great tranquility.

El Clásico is a motivation because Real Madrid is a great rival and you have to be prepared for the big games, the team is going to give everything and I am very calm. I trust the team, we have to improve as always, but we will go out to compete, we play at home and in a Classic there is no favorite. Our motivation is to play for them and that is why it is important that people arrive”.

Ansu began wanting to “thank the club for giving me the opportunity to continue for a few more years. HIt has been a pleasure growing up here and I will work harder every day to improve as a footballer and as a person and to give the best of myself to the club. All of us who are here are here to improve the club ”.

Before his presentation, the club issued a video of Ansu Fati comparing him with the great stars of the club that emerged from La Masia with images of Messi, Puyol, Xavi, Iniesta, Piqué, Busquets and Valdés in the club’s youth football categories. For Ansu this natural projection “is a pride, but I haven’t done anything yet”. Ansu added that “I am very calm because it is what my family and the people of the club transmit to me, that is what I value the most. I don’t feel the pressure to play or wear the number 10. I have to go my own way and not think about what Leo did, because what he did no one else will do.”.

Ansu is aware that he has to improve aspects of his game and in that sense he recalled the play of Wednesday’s game against Dinamo in which he tried an acrobatic shot instead of enabling Busquets or Coutinho, who were alone in the face of Koeman’s despair .

“I have a lot of room for improvement, you have to listen to people and promote what I can do. In that play I had the option of passing it and I should have looked before, this is learned over time, the truth is that I did not see Koeman’s gesture, but the next time I will look at Busi because if he does not get angry, when you are a striker, you only think about goal, goal, goal, but I’ll be fixing myself ”.

Regarding the months that he was out due to the injury, the Blaugrana player reassured the Barça fans: “The knee is forgotten, now what affects is fatigue, I am very calm, I have no discomfort and I hope it continues like this”.

The player stated that despite the offers he received “From the first day my priority was to stay and that is how Jorge understood it and I am very happy”And in this sense he wanted to have a word of thanks to the people who have helped him at the club. He especially had a memory for “Víctor Valdés, to whom I am very grateful because he helped me a lot in that stage that alternated with the first team to manage emotions, I wish I had spent more time with him”.
