Ansu Fati proud of record-breaking double in Barcelona win

Ansu Fati was thrilled with his double in Barcelona's 2-1 defeat of Levante.

The 17-year-old scored twice in the first half in the Blaugrana's 2-1 win over Levante at the Camp Nou.

"It's all a dream," Ansu said after the game

"I've always dreamed of this moment and today it came true.

"I want to thank my teammates and the coach for giving me another opportunity.

"Bit by bit, I'm believing what is happening to me."

Ansu became the youngster player ever to score a brace in LaLiga Santander with his two goals on Sunday night.

"I've just been told [about the record]. I want to keep improving and taking advantage of the opportunities," he added.

Lionel Messi set up the youngster for both of his goals with two typically impressive assists.

"I've been watching him play for many years and playing alongside him is a complete dream," Ansu noted.

"My teammates have been making everything easier since I arrived in the dressing room.

"I want to thank them.

"It's not easy for a kid to come in and everyone has been so good."
