Luis Enrique summons Ansu Fati, defends Rubiales and opens the door to Piqué

Ansu Fati returns to Luis Enrique’s list. After the ordeal of injuries, the Barça striker entered the call-up of the Spanish coach, which also includes his teammates Eric Garcia, Alba, Busquets, Gavi and Ferran Torres. The white-and-blue Raúl de Tomás is also mentioned for Spain’s next four commitments in the League of Nations. The coach conveyed his confidence to Luis Rubiales in the face of the “public beating” that he considers he is receiving for the dripping of controversial audios and kept open the question of Piqué’s return to the national team.

Ansu’s last match with the national team was on October 13, 2020. A month later he was injured against Betis and began his journey through the operating rooms. Luis Enrique was called up last year for the matches against Greece and Sweden, but was unable to attend due to injury again against Celta. “We don’t want to take any risks. He will not play most matches. We want him to return to his level. It’s more of a prize than the intention to load it with minutes, nothing could be further from the truth “, remarked the coach. In addition to the return of Ansu, the absence of Gaya in a list in which he remains David de Gea stands out. Along with Carvajal, the coach called a second Madrid player, Marcos Asensio. Although he did not worry about who he wants to win the Champions League, the Barça coach ruled that “if there is anyone who deserves to win this Champions League, it is Madrid”.
