Ansu Fati says Barcelona are aiming to triumph in LaLiga and the Champions League this season after making a goalscoring return to action against Levante on Sunday.
Fati, on as a late substitute, put the icing on the cake in his comeback following 10 months out with a knee injury, finishing superbly in stoppage time as Barca ended a run of three games without victory.
Luuk de Jong had earlier doubled Barca’s lead in his fourth appearance for the club following his move from Sevilla after his Netherlands team-mate Memphis Depay opened the scoring from the penalty spot.
It was the first time since March 2009 that two different Dutch players had scored in the same LaLiga game, Arjen Robben and Klaas-Jan Huntelaar last doing so for Real Madrid against Athletic Bilbao.
It has been a difficult start to the season for Barca following the shock departure of club icon Lionel Messi, with coach Ronald Koeman’s position the subject of intense scrutiny.
Fati, though, is expecting big things from the Catalan giants this season.
“We are Barca, we are going for LaLiga and the Champions League and all the competitions we are in,” he told Movistar.
“All the teams want to win everything, but we are Barca and we have to fight for it.”
