On Tuesday, Barcelona disclosed that midfielder Gavi has undergone surgery on his torn right knee anterior cruciate ligament (ACL), the club.
Last Sunday Gavi suffered a terrible injury during Spain’s Euro 2024 qualifier game against Georgia.
The 19-year-old left the field in tears during his side’s 3-1 win and an MRI scan later revealed that he had also injured the lateral meniscus besides the tear on his ACL.
The club confirmed that Gavi also underwent a meniscus suture process on Tuesday.
The LaLiga side said in its statement that Gavi’s “recovery will determine when he is fit to return to the squad.”
Gavi became a key player for Barcelona and for Spain over the last few seasons.
He started every game for Spain in the 2022 Qatar World Cup, also becoming the youngest scorer in the tournament since Pele in 1958.
