Ansu Fati is often seen as a Leo Messi-like figure at Barcelona. An electric attacker capable of scoring goals on his own, the youngster was given Leo's number 10 shirt.

However, Gerard Pique insists that putting too much pressure on Ansu will do more harm than good.

"Clubs like Barça and Madrid always need the figure of a decisive player at the top and who scores goals, especially when the most important player in history, such as Leo Messi, has left, but we have to be realistic," Pique said at a presser.

"He is 18 years old and we cannot burden him with a responsibility that does not fall on him.

"It would not be good for him and for the club."
