The defeat to Athletic Bilbao in the last 16 of the Copa del Rey also left other unpleasant news for Barcelona. Ansu Fati had to be sent off early in extra time due to injury.
After an examination, Ansu Fati turned out to have a left hamstring injury. This injury had bandaged him last November and required the player to be out for two months, before playing again on January 9.
This condition is certainly dizzying Barcelona who rely on him in attack, after the death of Lionel Messi. Moreover, Ansu Fati last season was in the treatment room due to a knee ligament injury.
Seeing the current situation, there is a possibility that Ansu Fati will go up to the operating table to improve the condition of his thigh so that it does not become a recurrence of the injury. Moreover, usually players will be more prone to injury after experiencing problems in their knee ligaments.
Therefore, Barcelona will discuss it with the team doctor about the best steps to take, so that Ansu Fati’s future career will last without injury, considering he is only 20 years old.
“We have had a meeting with his family and on Monday we will meet Ansu and the team of doctors to make a decision,” Barcelona coach Xavi Hernandez told ESPN.
“The injury recurred and was out of our control. Now we will make a more measured plan so that in the future he doesn’t have this kind of injury again,” he continued,
“It’s a shame this injury. His confidence has just recovered and is doing well again. He’s been so affected by this.”
“We will improve mentally and make him forget about this injury. We have to stay positive and hope he doesn’t get injured again.” Xavi Hernandez.
