Barcelona Slammed by Ansu Fati's Father Over Forward's Lack of Playing Time

Bori Fati feels his son deserves more playing time at Barcelona and has advised the 20-year-old to leave the club in the summer.

Fati's father has given an explosive interview regarding his son's situation at Barcelona. The 20-year-old has been unable to make an impact at Camp Nou this season and has not found the back of the net in La Liga since October in a 3-0 win over Villarreal.

Fati inherited Lionel Messi's No.10 shirt following the Argentine's surprise departure in 2021, but has since struggled with a number of serious injuries and is yet to force his way back into the Barca starting XI.

Bori Fati believes his son deserves more game time and is frustrated at the way he's being used by Xavi at Camp Nou.

"As a father I am angry, yes, like any father. Because seeing Ansu play so little makes you a little angry. I tell them that we deserve much more. Ansu when he played before getting injured, there was Messi, [Luis] Suarez, [Ousmane] Dembele, [Antoine] Griezmann," he told COPE.

"It bothers me that they give him a minute, two minutes or three minutes. The forwards that are there are phenomenal, but we are talking about Ansu Fati, from the Spanish national team, he is not just any boy. He's a boy who left La Masía. If you don't give him that, what are you going to give him? Ansu deserves much more, we're talking about Barcelona's '10.'"

Bori Fati also said he would be happy to see his son leave Barcelona, but made it clear the forward wants to continue at Camp Nou.
