Dani Alves compares Ansu Fati with Blaugrana legend Samuel Eto’o

Sports Al Dente

Right-back for Barcelona Dani Alves has revealed that Ansu Fati, his teammate and prodigy, reminds him of former Blaugrana icon Samuel Eto'o.

Fati is one of the most gifted players to emerge from the club's illustrious La Masia academy in recent years.

After Lionel Messi's departure to Paris Saint-Germain, he also inherited the No. 10 shirt at the start of the current season.

Alves, who returned to the Camp Nou in January, recently revealed that he and Fati are close in an interview with Diario Sport.

He also compared the Spaniard's ongoing injury problems to Messi's when he initially started playing for the first squad and predicted that he will recover.

Fati reminded him of Eto'o, the Brazilian said in the same interview.

Ansu was born to score goals. He reminds me a lot of Samuel Eto'o.

He is a machine for destroying defences. I think he can also define an era, a special history within Barça.
