Ansu Fati is a gentleman on and off the field, and he sent a heartfelt farewell message to Samuel Umtiti after the defender moved to Lecce on loan.
The teenager used Instagram stories to thank the center-back for all the help he had given him during his time at Barcelona.
“All the best, Sam! Thanks for taking care of me as your little brother, giving me advice, and making me laugh. I hope you do well in this new phase, and I’ll miss you!!!
Umtiti has also used social media to say goodbye and thank Lecce for the warm welcome he has gotten since moving to Italy from Barcelona this week.
He wrote, “I’m still trying to understand everything that happened yesterday. Thank you for the love with which you welcomed me. I am excited and eager to start competing with this Club. I also want to thank FC Barcelona and all of its fans for the great years we’ve shared. I wish you all the best this season.”
