Ansu Fati has taken to social media to mark his debut with Barcelona.

For victory over Real Betis, Fati debuted for the Blaugrana at just 16 years, nine months and 25 days of age, becoming the club's second-youngest player.

He is full of gratitude and posted a message on Monday thanking all those who made his debut possible.

"Thanks to everyone," he wrote on Instagram.

"I will remember yesterday all my life.

"The dream of any boy in La Masía is to debut at the Camp Nou.

"Sharing it with the best players in the world was an unforgettable experience.

"I only have words of thanks to them for their excellent reception.

"None of this would have been possible without my family, without their daily and unconditional support.

"Thanks also to La Masía, the best soccer school in the world.

"To my colleagues and coaches who have taught me values that will always accompany me.

"I promise to continue with humility, work and my feet on the ground."
