– Ansu runs like a gazelle, like a young and black street vendor rushing on Paseo de Gracia (one of Barcelona’s main streets) when someone shouts to warn the police of their arrival, Salvador Sostres wrote the match between Barcelona and Ferencvaros in a match report.
In his own words, the Spanish journalist wanted to praise the text Ansu Fatia, when he became the first player in history to score two goals in the Champions League under the age of 18.
The praise was not entirely successful, as the description was considered very racist. Sostres’ writing was soon removed from the web, but FC Barcelona plans to take legal action against ABC and Sostres.
Now the reporter has humbly apologized for his text.
– I wanted to praise the beauty of Ansu’s movements and his youth as a player. Some expressions were considered racist. However, that was not my intention, Sostres apologized.
According to the man, he has incited Fatia, 17, in his reports since the young man’s debut.
– I am very sorry for the misunderstanding and I apologize for all that I have offended.
