The injury problems encountered by Ansu Fati, on loan to Brighton from FC Barcelona, ​​are reminiscent of those of Ousmane Dembélé when he wore the famous Catalan jersey.

The case of Ansu Fati is of concern. So young and already with so many injuries, the Spanish winger’s situation is far from normal. Loaned this season by FC Barcelona to Brighton (Premier League), Fati has just seriously relapsed.

The 21-year-old will be out for around three months, Seagulls coach Roberto de Zerbi said on Friday. Ansu Fati was injured hamstring, November 25 against Nottingham Forest (3-2 – 13th day of the Premier League).

From November 2020, the man who was considered a great hope for Barça and Spanish football remained almost a year without playing due to a knee injury. Back in September 2021, Ansu Fati was then disturbed in particular by muscular problems.

In 2021-2022 and 2022-2023, the player from Guinea Bissau missed nearly forty matches with FC Barcelona. This fragility is reminiscent of that of Ousmane Dembélé when he also wore the Catalan jersey (2017-2023).

The French winger, transferred last summer to PSG, a state better known in Barcelona for his visits to the infirmary than his performances on the field. Let’s wish the opposite to Ansu Fati.
