Xavi on Ansu Fati

🗣️ Xavi: “I see Ansu Fati as more of a number 9.”

  • Not bad if you ask me. But I’m seeing some people say “he’s not tall enough for a 9”, “he’s not strong like Lewa or Haaland”, “he will ghost at centre forward”…
  • The way I see it is Ansu is gonna be more of a modern number 9, Mbappe/Jesus type. We’ve seen Barça CFs to shine even though they’re not big and strong, for example Villa and Eto’o.
  • Recently, Guardiola plays Jesus and even Foden as the central forward and succeeds in it too. Chelsea plays Timo Werner and at times, Havertz at CF too. Klopp spent multiple years being successful with a “not so physical” Firmino as his number 9.

  • We are yet to see how Fati develops as a number 9. He has got extremely good positional awareness, a very good amount of pace, killer finishing too. Moreover, with someone like Ferran Torres with him on the trio, they can interchange positions and Ferran can open up spaces for him to explore and finish the through balls.

  • Excited to do what Xavi does now, with a cheat code like Fati on his arsenal.
