Ansu Fati, a Barcelona midfielder, had surgery on his left knee’s internal meniscus on November 9 after suffering an injury against Real Betis. According to Mundo Deportivo, the plan at the time was for him to miss four months of action, but the way things have turned out has prompted Barcelona to change the timetable for his return and postpone his reintegration.
According to club sources, the teenager is making slow progress, and that his return date, which had been set for late March, has been pushed back to well into April. Ansu has not yet reached the point that he can work with the ball in training.
Barcelona is a slow-moving city. They don’t want to take any chances and push his recovery because such a decision could be catastrophic at such a young age. When his body is ready, Ansu will return to training and competition, and the player himself is confident that there is hope at the end of the tunnel. He needs to make it back in time for the season’s pivotal moments.
