‘One of the main doubts’: Luis Enrique explains Ansu Fati call-up

Luis Enrique called up Ansu Fati for the 2022 World Cup despite his limited contribution at Barcelona. Here’s how Spain’s coach explained his decision

It’s been one of the main doubts until the last minute. I have decided to bet on him over other players,” Marca quote Luis Enrique saying.

“Ansu’s abilities are unquestionable. He’s gone through a difficult time and I had doubts until the last second.

“Is he close to his best level? We’ll have to see about that. I think it can be a great stimulus for him to return to the squad, but there are doubts. We will see what happens during the World Cup.”

Due to injuries, Ansu hasn’t played for Spain since 2020. The 20-year-old wasn’t a part of La Roja’s squad for the latest international break either, so his inclusion came as a surprise.

Fati cried when he found out about the call-up. Ansu believes that the World Cup is the perfect opportunity to show everyone that he’s back at his best, Diario Sport say
