This is understandable as the FIFA World Cup coming up in less than a month.
Fati has had bad luck with injuries and just when he is working hard to get back into groove, his game time has been limited by Xavi.
Xavi and his staff defend their actions by saying that are going slow with Fati due to his injury record.
But this justification is not going down down too well with Fati’s camp.
Fact is, the player sees himself as a starter and does not like coming on from the bench.
While Fati has played in all of Barcelona’s 15 official matches so far this term in all competitions, he has started just three of those.
In those matches, he has made an impact with three goals and three assists.
With Barcelona scheduled to play five more games before the World Cup break, it will be interesting to see whether Fati gets more minutes.
