Barcelona whiz Ansu Fati insists no pressure taking No10 shirt
Barcelona whiz Ansu Fati insists he feels no pressure wearing the No10 shirt.
Fati has inherited the number from Lionel Messi after the Argentine's departure for PSG.
"It's true that the No 10 jersey has been worn by Leo [Messi] and many players but I'm calm," said Fati of his new number. "I know what I can bring to this team.
"For me it's not a pressure. No one is going to be like Leo, no one is going to be like [former captains Carles] Puyol or Xavi [Hernandez]. No one is going to equal what Leo has done. I'm going to follow my own journey. I still haven't done anything. I hope I can have a career like they have had.
"Any player could have worn the No 10. I'm grateful that the captains offered me the number and luckily, I got it. It's an extra motivation for me. I don't look at the number but focus on what I can do on the pitch to help the team."
