Ansu Fati Upset That Father Ripped Barcelona Without Informing Him Rant Was Coming

Ansu Fati has not taken kindly to the strong words given by his father Bori, which slammed current employers Barcelona and urged his son to move on.

Fati's father gave an explosive with COPE in the early hours of Wednesday morning claiming he was "angry" about his son's lack of playing time, which, he claimed, is lower than the days when Lionel Messi was around (even though the player is set to break his personal best for La Liga appearances). Fati, the rather unwanted inheritor of that famous No.10 shirt, was in bed at the time of said interview, and Relevo reports that he was completely unaware it was taking place.

The Spanish outlet continues that the 20-year-old is upset by being blindsided by his father, as he has thus far kept a low profile in front of the media and internally at Barca. As a result, it is thought that Fati is considering releasing a statement in order to separate himself from his father's comments.
