Selection | Luis Enrique, alone with Ansu

Luis Enrique, a solas con Ansu

Although he has not yet played a minute in this tour de force of the Nations League, Ansu Fati is not going to leave the concentration of the National Team empty-handed. This Tuesday, in Balexert, Ciutat Esportiva del Servette, which is located in Vernier (around Geneva), the striker spent half an hour working alone with the coach, Luis Enrique, who is dedicating special efforts to him so that he recovers the level of confidence he had for months.

After training at Balexert ended, and while his teammates were practicing penalty shots, Ansu went to the other part of the field. There, while Luis Enrique talked alone for a few minutes with Unai Simón, correcting some lateral movements, the Barça striker began to rehearse finishing. First, with the Athletic goalkeeper as a luxury rival. Then, alone with the coach, who was already following his pupil’s training barefoot and shirtless as is now a classic.

Ansu rehearsed shots, coming out first from the right profile and then from the left. With the work between eyebrows, the nine continues to increase workloads in the hope of having minutes soon. “He’s recovered, forget about it; otherwise it’s going to create a pathology for him,” insisted the coach at the press conference prior to the match against Portugal in Seville. That’s what he’s doing as coach, convincing him alone that he’s going to get back to his best level and he’s going to be the star player and one of the players with the most world projection for a year and a half. Being in the World Cup is a personal commitment of the coach.
