Valverde: It will not be good for Barcelona if Ansu Fati plays at the World Cup

Barcelona coach Ernesto Valverde said that it would not be good for Barcelona if their new star Ansu Fati participates in the World Under-17 World Cup.

“We will wait for him to receive a call-up and then we will see what we will do. It will be an obstacle for us if he goes to the World Cup by the age of 17. I don’t think he will ask me for advice on whether to play in it, but he must make his own decisions. “Will Ansu Fati replace Usman Dembele from the starting line-up? We will see in time which player will bring us more balance in defense and attack. We expect Dembele to train with the other players today,” Valverde said.
