The Pole has released Ansu from the pressure exerted on him after the departure of Leo Messi
They have shown a special connection, an example of this was the third goal in Cádiz
When Barça signed Lewandowski he did it because he wanted the best ‘9’ for a Barça team that had been punished for the lack of punch after the departure of Leo Messi. The Argentine had led the team’s scoring charts for the past twelve years, with permission from Luis Suarezand the Pole arrived, a year late, to fill that gap.
But the transfer of Lewandowski, to the surprise of many, is being much more than this. He feels comfortable in his new home and has won over the fans from the first minute, greeting the crowd with applause at each game before he starts the ball rolling at the Camp Nou. He is a leader, directs, corrects and encourages his teammates. And he has shown a special connection with the youngest. With Pedri, Gavi, Bucket… and, above all, with Ansu Fati.
The pressure after Messi’s goodbye
With the march of Messia very young Ansu Fati At the age of 18, he inherited the ’10’ and had to deal with unfair pressure from many parties who expected him to be, of course, his favorite successor.
But Ansu He was neither old nor experienced to throw himself into a team with so many shortcomings behind him. And, to make matters worse, he suffered a calvaro of injuries throughout the season that did not let him shine.
Accompanied by ‘Lewy’
Ansu Fati has found in Lewandowski a godfather In Cádiz they shared the bench during the first half and did not stop commenting on the game and laughing. A godfather who cares for him, protects him and encourages him. That he assumes all the pressure and releases him. And that he accompanies him when he knows that it is his moment.
Barça’s third goal in Cádiz was exactly this. A great play by the Pole, who stood out, held his body in one-on-one and, despite the fact that he had the goal in his boots, he left the ball to the ’10’ so that he only had to push.
Nice detail of ‘Lewy‘ with a Ansu who, little by little, is regaining confidence and smile.
