A talent a day, Hector Fort: yet another jewel produced by Masia

Hector Fort It is the latest example of Barcelona’s now famous ‘Made in Masia’ policy. Born in 2006, the right back who recently started playing on the left wing as a replacement for the injured Alex Baldé, yesterday signed a renewal with the club of his life until 2026. The emotion of his debut is already behind him , having already played his first matches in the Champions League and Spanish League in just over a month.

It is worth noting that in four appearances for the first team, Fort has already made his mark. He provided a crucial assist to Raphinha in the win against Barbastro in the third round of the Copa del Rey and although Barça were eliminated in the quarter-finals by Athletic Bilbao, Fort impressed by playing out of role for more than an hour at San Mamés, earning applause from the fans. In Rafa Marquez’s Barça B he plays as a right-back, while among the seniors he is often deployed on the left and in the youth teams he also played the role of central. Fort also shone in the Youth League, before being definitively accepted by the big boys.
