Barcelona's 2-goal Ansu Fati: A dream come true to play with Messi

Barcelona whiz Ansu Fati was delighted with his brace for their 4-0 defeat of Villarreal.

Fati says he's desperate to take advantage of every opportunity he gets at Barcelona.

"Every chance I get, I try to make the most of it," Ansu Fati said after the game.

"When a striker scores he always wants more.

"Jordi Alba's pass was very good so I just had to help it in."

Despite being in the first team for a year now, the novelty of playing alongside Lionel Messi hasn't yet worn off.

"Playing with Messi is a dream," Fati added.

"I had that dream since I was a child and now I'm living it."

Ronald Koeman said after the match that the Spaniard had a big future ahead of him, but the teenager knows that'll only come from work.

"What I want is to keep improving every day and to keep learning from my colleagues," Fati said.

"They're trying their best to help me every day."
