Lovely moment Ansu Fati came good on his promise to a Juventus ball boy

With the world at his feet at the mere age of 17, Ansu Fati showed he hasn’t forgotten his roots after the Champions League match against Juventus.

The Barcelona youngster is still very humble in every manner as he went out of his way to fulfill a promise made to one of the ballboys on the night.

Ansu Fati had promised a ball boy his shirt before the game and at the full-time whistle, not only did he came good on his word but even took pictures with all of the ball boys at the stadium.

The humility this young lad possesses at the age of 17 is genuinely unmatched.

Barcelona were made to look ‘Barcelona of the old’ as Ronald Koeman’s side eased to a 2-0 victory at the Allianz Stadium.

A first-half goal from Ousmane Dembele and a stoppage time penalty from Lionel Messi made sure Barcelona got back to winning ways after El Clasico defeat.

Ansu Fati might have made the Juve ballboy’s day but ended up annoying his own fans late in the game.

With acres of space in the Juventus box, the 17-year-old, rather peculiarly, decided to square the ball to Martin Braithwaite instead of trying to get on the scoresheet himself.
