World News – US – Ansu Fati turns 18: Barca star savoring ‘just the start’ as Koeman says best is yet to come


Ansu Fati has been urged to reach new heights with Barcelona as he celebrates his 18th birthday with another La Liga outing

The young forward has garnered attention since making his debut with the Camp Nou giants at the age of 16, and four goals in his first five league appearances this season have confirmed his progress

Fati, the youngest goalscorer in Barcelona history, has also won in the Spanish squad and could take the delayed Euro 2020 by storm if his ascent continues

Barcelona boss Ronald Koeman has come to regard Fati as a key part of his squad, but the Dutch coach says there are areas where the teenager can still improve

As Fati celebrates on Saturday, he and Barcelona travel to Alaves for their final La Liga clash, looking to bounce back from last weekend’s 3-1 loss to Real Madrid in the season opener Clasico

Koeman revealed he spoke with Fati on Thursday to remind him in time how he can take his performance to the next level

“I was with Ansu for a while talking about focus,” Koeman said. “I think he needs to improve in that direction

« When he loses the ball it’s because of a question of concentration, not because of his quality In that sense, he can improve and he has our help every day

« He’s a very talented player, he’s a very good player. He has a really high level of play, so we have to take care of him and especially help him in his career projection and his concentration

Fati himself told Mundo Deportivo newspaper: « This is just the start, I hope to celebrate more years as a Barca player »

With his goal in last week’s loss to Madrid, Fati became the youngest player in the 21st century to score in El Clasico, aged 17 and 359 days

This season, he also became the first player to score more than once in the Champions League before turning 18

He was the first LaLiga player born in 2000 or later to score 10 or more goals in all competitions, also becoming in September the youngest player in Europe’s top five leagues to achieve double goals since the start from last season

At 17 years and 311 days old, Fati became Spain’s youngest goalscorer in history when he scored his first start for the national team with a strike in the 4-0 win over Ukraine on September 6

Birthday wishes for Fati came on Saturday from LaLiga, who tweeted to list a range of his accomplishments and declare: « The world is yours »
