Ansu Fati's feeling like a footballer again. Ronald Koeman completed the plan bu bringing him on with around 10 minutes to go against Levante. Ansu could feel the sensation of playing again.
It's been 323 days since he injured his knee against Real Betis. He's overcome several operations to reach this moment, working hard to be able to enjoy his passion.
He came on for Luuk de Jong to a standing ovation from the 35,000 crowd, who chanted his name. He was received as he deserved to be. He's the big hope of a Barça in reconstruction.
He came on with the No.10 on his back, inherited from Lionel Messi, and didn't take long to make his mark on the game.
The 18-year-old had a mazy run which ended with a shot that was deflected for a corner. Another run could have drawn a penalty. Should have, perhaps. VAR didn't step in.
However, his moment arrived. In stoppage time he scored with a brilliant strike from outside the area.
