The prodigious talent shone on the international stage and he is hoping to figure more for the Blaugrana in the coming campaign
The Guinea-Bissau-born forward, who also won the penalty for the Sergio Ramos’ opener against Ukraine, is aiming to show new Barca coach Koeman that he is worthy of a regular spot in Barca’s first team in the coming season.
While the teenager made 33 appearances and scored eight goals in a record-breaking debut season for Barcelona, he came on in 18 of those matches as a substitute.
“I will continue working and the coach is the one who decides,” Fati said when asked if he can play more at Barca this season.
“I will train hard, if I have the opportunity I will try to take advantage of it.”
The international break marked Fati’s first experience at working with Spanish national team coach Luis Enrique.
He revealed he was warmly welcomed into the international setup and spoke of the honour of being able to work with Enrique.
“It is a pride to work with Luis Enrique and with all the players who are here; they received me with open arms and all the confidence in the world,” he said.
“To continue working, as always, with humility, and everything will come.”
Fati’s first season in senior football has seen him break a swathe of records – which started with him becoming Barca’s youngest ever goalscorer against Osasuna in September last year.
In December, Fati earned the honour of being the Blaugrana’s youngest ever scorer in the Champions League, with his winning goal against Inter in a 2-1 win in the group stages.
