Barcelona head coach Xavi commented on the debut of 15-year-old junior Lamin Yamal in the La Liga match with Real Betis (4:0).

“I told him to take over the game and he did. He is special. He can score, he can assist, he has flair. He showed what he is. He is not afraid. He made some very good last passes. I think he has a lot of potential and he can become an important player.

Does he look like Messi or Ansu Fati? Yes, he has an innate three-quarter talent that is so hard to find. He doesn’t look 15 years old. He is more mature. I see how he trains and I see that he is ready, that’s why I put him in the squad. He is a player who can make a difference on the pitch and he showed it today. He played 10 minutes, but he played well. He is a player who can play an important role in the club and in the team,” Xavi said.

Note that Yamal became the youngest player ever to play for Barcelona.
