The recent match between Spain and Georgia in the Euros qualifiers has left Barcelona and Spanish talent Gavi (19) with a lot to be upset about. During the game, Gavi suffered an injury to his right knee and had to leave the field in the 26th minute. Fears of a rupture of the anterior cruciate ligament were confirmed by the manager after the match, leaving Luis De la Fuente and his team devastated.
According to Spanish newspaper Marca, there was a somber atmosphere in the Furia dressing room as news of Gavi’s injury spread. It is expected that Gavi will be out of action until the end of the season, which will undoubtedly have a significant impact on both Barcelona and Spain’s performance in future matches.
Meanwhile, Mundo Deportivo reports that Barcelona is fuming over the situation. They are unhappy that their player had to play in a meaningless match for them, as they had already secured their spot in the Euros earlier. The compensation from FIFA could potentially be between four and five million euros, but it won’t make up for Gavi’s loss of time on the pitch.
