FC Barcelona striker reached at a lot of appearances against Getafe, an accomplishment that makes him the third youngest player in club history to reach at that milestone.
It was a memorable day for Ansu Fati at the Stadium Alfonso Pérez on Sunday April 16, subsequent to coming on in the second half of the 0-0 draw against Getafe. It was his 100th appearance for the Barça senior team, coming more than three years after his introduction against Betis back on 25 August 2019.
Fati has done it at the period of only 20 years, 5 months and 16 days, a phenomenally youthful age to have played such countless games, and particularly taking into account the fact that injuries have meant that more than a year of Ansu’ time has been spent out of action.
Meanwhile, the youngest was the recently retired Bojan Krkic (19 years, 2 months, 24 days), and the second youngest was his current team-mate Pedri, who reached 100 against Girona last January at the age of 20 years, 2 months and 4 days, and got to celebrate the occasion with the only goal of the match.
This implies that the incomparable Lionel Messi is never again part of the best three. He was a ‘veteran’ of 20 years, 8 months and 3 days when he played his 100th game for the club. The one who acquired Messi’s number ten shirt has now assumed the Argentinian’s position on the platform.
