FC Barcelona Forward Out For Four Months
FC Barcelona have confirmed(on Monday) Ansu Fati will be sidelined for four months following successful surgery on his left knee. He had the operation after tearing the internal meniscus of his left knee during FC Barcelona’s 5-2 win over Real Betis on Saturday.
The 18-year-old winger will miss the majority of the rest of the season but could return for the run-in and will hope to be fit again in time to play for Spain in next summer’s European Championship. FC Barcelona’s chances in La Liga and the Champions League have been dealt a blow by Fati’s injury, given the forward had emerged as one of Ronald Koeman’s most exciting players.
The Spain international has already scored five goals and provided two assists in his 10 appearances this season.
