Fans have been weirded out by Barcelona star Ansu Fati’s voice – thinking he sounds exactly the same as club legend Lionel Messi.
Fati made his first appearance for the Blaugrana since November over the weekend and scored on his return and we at SPORTSWorldGhana.com asks you whether you think the 18-year old is on the same patch as Lionel Messi did.
The 18-year-old netted Barca’s third in injury time to seal victory over Levante and following the game, he spoke about his ordeal.
Supporters think his voice was all too familiar however and compared it to Messi’s. Listen to the two clips below to judge for yourself.
Both players moved to Spain as children and it’s only natural they picked up an accent in their early careers.
Still, Fati sounding exactly like the six-time Ballon d’Or winner just months after his departure is quite strange.
It’s something supporters on social media have caught on to and they’ve joked Messi ‘couldn’t leave Barcelona’ so took over Fati.
