Barcelona have been warned that Gavi might be out for over eight months after struggling an ACL tear on worldwide responsibility with Spain.
The Catalan giants confirmed on Monday that their teenage midfielder has suffered a “complete tear” of his ACL and an “associated injury to the lateral meniscus.”
Gavi will now endure surgical procedure within the subsequent few days and Barca are possible to supply a timeline of when he may return at that time.
However, Dr Ripoll of the Ripoll and De Prado Sport Clinic (a FIFA accredited medical middle of excellence) has warned will probably be a very long time till Gavi is again out on the pitch.
“Recovery in 6 months is ruled out, it will be 8 months or more. A good recovery is important and you can recover completely,” he informed Jijantes.
If the estimate proves to be right then it means Gavi will miss the remainder of the season, the Euros and the Olympics and gained’t return till pre-season.
