Ronald Koeman confirm Ansu Fati ahead of Ousmane Dembele. The 23-year old has struggled with injuries during his three seasons.
Barcelona boss Ronald Koeman has confirmed teenage star Ansu Fati is ahead of teammate Ousmane Dembele in his first team plans this season.
The Dutch coach has placed his faith in 17-year old Fati at the start of the 2020-21 La Liga campaign, with three goals in two starts for the Spanish international.
French international Dembele was linked with a potential last minute exit from the club, but technical secretary Ramon Planes confirmed this week there is no plan to sell him.
“We have a lot of competition in attack and a lot of quality,” he told an interview with Marca.
“Dembélé can play on both sides, but we have many players to fit in. Ansu is ahead of Dembélé. If a player is unhappy, he can talk to me. But he has not spoken to me and I will be counting on him.”
