Aged 16 years and 298 days, Ansu Fati made Barcelona history last night when he became the club’s youngest ever player since 1941 and the kid looked incredibly exciting in his 15 minute cameo.

With Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez out for the visit of Real Betis last night, Fati was called up to the first-team training and then made the bench for the game at the Nou Camp.

And with Barca 5-1 up late on, Fati replaced Carles Perez in the 79th minute and looked perfectly at home on the right-hand side during his debut.

He was so impressive in fact, that he even received a hug from Barca talisman and captain Lionel Messi, who gave him a massive seal of approval on social media.
