The reason why Ansu Fati could not accept the ‘Player of the match’ award

Ansu Fati played impressively with 3 goals for Barca in the last 2 rounds of La Liga. However, fans did not see him being named “Best Player of the Game”.

According to Infobae, the rising star of Barca cannot receive this award in La Liga matches in the 2020/21 season for special reasons. The awarding company is a beer company. That sponsors La Liga and the law does not allow a minor’s image to be associated with alcoholic beverages.

Ansu Fati has just turned 17. This player will have to wait until 25/8/2021 to stand on the podium to receive the title of “Best Player of the Game” in La Liga.

In the match Barca against Celta Vigo in the fourth round of La Liga, Ansu Fati opened the scoring in the 11th minute. The young star born in 2002 showed his class with an outer cheek, not giving the opponent the opportunity to block.

Fati contributed to a 3-0 victory over Celta Vigo, thereby ending Barca’s five unsuccessful years at Balaidos. Before that, in Barca’s opening match in the third round of La Liga, Fati scored a double in the 15 and 19 minutes. The 17-year-old young star also brought a 11-meter penalty for Lionel Messi to score in the 35th minute.

Barca retains Fati with a new contract with a term to 2024 with a release clause of 400 million euros. Sport said coach Koeman considers Fati an important part of the club in the new season.

Last season, Fati also set a series of records when becoming the youngest player to score in La Liga, the Champions League. In the national team, Fati is the youngest player to score in Spain’s history, scoring Ukraine.

Barca retains Fati with a new contract until 2024, with a 400 million euro release clause. Sport said coach Koeman sees Fati as an important part of the club in the new season.
