​Barcelona winger Ansu Fati has admitted he has always dreamed about scoring twice at Camp Nou, a vision he realised in Sunday's 2-1 win over Levante.


The 17-year-old has enjoyed an outstanding rise to prominence this season, and his campaign reached a new level as he netted twice in quick succession to steer Barcelona to a much-needed win.

Speaking after the game (via Marca), Fati confessed that he is still yet to comprehend what is actually happening to him this season.


"It's all a dream," he said. "I've always dreamed of this moment and today it came true. I want to thank my teammates and the coach for giving me another opportunity. Bit by bit, I'm believing what is happening to me."


To add to the list of achievements for Fati, his double against Levante made him the youngest player to ever score two goals in a single ​La Liga game. He was 17 years and 94 days old, which broke the record of 17 years and 115 days set by Juanmi in 2010.


"I've just been told [about the record]. I want to keep improving and taking advantage of the opportunities," he added. "My teammates have been making everything easier since I arrived in the dressing room. I want to thank them. It's not easy for a kid to come in and everyone has been so good."


Fati has started the last three matches under new manager Quique Setién, who has proven to be willing to turn to young players if they can prove they deserve minutes in the team.


In his post-match press conference (via ​AS), Setién admitted that he has been blown away by Fati, who has impressed at both ends of the field in such a short space of time.

"I think that Ansu is a boy that is emerging, that we all know has great potential and that you have to understand that you have to give him peace of mind and confidence to exploit what he has inside," he said.


"Apart from the two goals, what I give credit is the work he has done in defence. He has worked hard. It has given us solutions."
