Barcelona’s Ansu Fati and Ilaix Moriba, both 18 years old, are now leading the wonder kids.
Teko Modise, a former Orlando Pirates and Mamelodi Sundowns midfielder, believes that La Liga’s emerging talents with “strong African roots” should seize any opportunity that comes their way.
Moreover, Moriba was born in Conakry, while Fati, currently a full Spain international striker, was born in Guinea-Bissau and has represented his adopted country’s Under-17 national team.
Further, Modise told La Liga, “It’s thrilling to see the new generation of Spanish players, especially those with strong African roots.” “Ansu Fati and Ilaix Moribi are two young superstars who are gaining opportunities to play for major teams in Span.
Also, Adama Traore, a Malian-born winger for Wolverhampton Wanderers, came through Barcelona’s La Masia development system and is a Spain international, but he has only played one La Liga game. Inaki Williams, an attacker for Athletic Bilbao, has represented Spain and is of Ghanaian and Liberian descent.
In addition, “What makes football, football,” said Modise, “is the extremely technical and tactically gifted qualities of footballers.” “It’s such a unique league, with a style of football that you won’t find anyplace else.” Also, “the emphasis is on football culture and respecting the player’s right to play football on the ground.”
Additionally, that is the idea of Spanish football, and it is why, for a footballer, LaLiga is the league that everyone wants to play in, especially at that level.”
Algerian player Nabil Fekir and famous Real Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane both excelled in La Liga.
