OPINION| Ansu Fati Can't And Will Not Replace Messi's Shoes At Barcelona

On 67 minutes, Luuk de Jong was replaced by Ansu Fati as part of a three-man substitution that also saw Philippe Coutinho replacing Pedri and Nico replacing Sergio Busquets. But, unlike the weekend, when Barcelona's number 10 triggered an instant Barça goal, this time Ansu had yet to touch the ball and Benfica had doubled their advantage.

When Ter Stegen stopped a pass from Joao Mario to Yaremchuk, the ball went to Rafa Silva, who scored. Sergino Dest dangled his hand in front of Gilberto's header with 13 minutes left, and referee Daniele Orsato awarded a penalty, which Darwin curled into the right-hand corner as Ter Stegen dove the other way. All that remained was for Eric Garcia to receive a second yellow card for restraining Julian Weigl.

‘We have to keep our expectations in check. It's challenging to compete with the major European clubs right now because of the adjustments we're making in the team,' Pre-game, Koeman remarked. It's one thing to acknowledge that you're no longer Europe's monarchs. It's one thing to accept defeats like this one and point the finger at the coach. Busquets stated, "We all have a part of the blame." ‘However, the situation is dire.'

Many people kept on referring to Ansu Fati as the kid to take Barcelona back to its glory days just like what Messi did when he was steel a teenager at Barcelona. What people don't understand is that Messi is an extra ordinary player who does extra ordinary things, unlike Ansu Fati who is only a good player. It will take someone extra ordinary to take Barcelona back to their glory days and Ansu Fati is just not that guy. He was over hyped by the media for no reason.
