The 15 year old made history at the Camp Nou on Saturday night against Betis
Lamine Yamal became yesterday, in the match against Betis, the youngest debutant in Barça's history in La Liga at 15 years and 290 days. The home-grown player came on for Gavi in the 83rd minute with the game decided, but offering flashes of his enormous quality.
The player has written a message through his Instagram account showing his happiness. "Dream come true. Happy to be able to debut with this shirt! Thank you very much culers for the support. Let's keep working. Visca el Barça", he wrote.
Lamine Yamal, who wore the number 41 jersey, was able to score within minutes of coming on after stealing a ball from Montoya. His subsequent shot was saved by Rui Silva. Shortly afterwards, in the 89th minute, he made a great assist for Dembélé, which the Frenchman was unable to follow up when he tried to pass the ball to Lewandowski to score into an empty net.
The young player showed at the Spotify Camp Nou his talent and the qualities that make him the youth academy's biggest asset. That is why Barça have a special plan for him, which involves, first and foremost, securing his renewal and signing his first professional contract in July.
