Barcelona’s rising star, Gavi, faces a devastating setback as the club confirms the worst-case injury scenario: a torn ACL in his right knee. The 19-year-old midfielder, who was representing Spain in their Euro 2024 qualifier against Georgia, was visibly distraught as he left the field in tears. Barcelona has announced that Gavi will undergo surgery in the coming days to address the complete tear of the anterior cruciate ligament and an associated injury to the lateral meniscus.
The young talent’s 2023-24 campaign is likely to come to an abrupt end, and Barcelona has not provided a specific timeline for his recovery. Gavi’s absence will be deeply felt, and he is expected to be sidelined for several months. The club issued a statement on its official website, detailing the extent of the injury and the upcoming medical procedures.
As Barcelona prepares for their next La Liga clash against Vallecano on November 25, the impact of Gavi’s absence looms large. The team, along with fans, awaits further updates on the talented midfielder’s recovery journey, emphasizing the unpredictability of sports and the challenges athletes face in overcoming injuries.
