Fati reportedly unhappy with Xavi over lack of playing time

Ansu Fati and his family are upset with Xavi not giving the youngster enough playing time, Diario Sport reports.

The 19-year-old sees himself as a key player in this Barca side and does not like starting games on the bench. Yet he has made just three starts across all competitions this season, in addition to 12 substitute appearances.

The forward is particularly concerned with his chances of making Spain’s World Cup squad.

Fati has scored three goals and provided the same number of assists in 15 appearances. Overall, he’s played just 490 minutes of football — around five and a half full matches.

Fati was one of the best players on the pitch against Villarreal but was benched for the Athletic game.
