The Brighton manager has publicly criticized Ansu Fati’s performance this season. One of Spain’s greatest promises and heir to Messi’s number 10 shirt at Barcelona, the striker is on loan until the end of this season to the English team. Without convincing, the Spaniard has low minutes and needs to show more, according to Italian coach Roberto De Zerbi.

— He has to give something more, because what he is doing is not enough. Expectations from him are always very high — said De Zerbi.

On loan for one season at Brighton, Ansu Fati suffered a serious calf injury at the end of last year and was sidelined for more than two months. The Spaniard only returned to action at the beginning of February.

Since returning from injury, the Spaniard has only started two matches: one against Wolves and another against Nottingham Forest, both in the Premier League. At the weekend, Ansu Fati was left on the bench in the 2-1 defeat against Liverpool and did not enter the field.

Despite public criticism of the 21-year-old, De Zerbi believes Ansu Fati has the chance to become a great player. You just need to know how to deal with expectations during your career.

— The first part of his career was difficult to accept and understand, but for great players the most important thing is to adapt to the expectations they have — he added.
