FC Barcelona just can not seem to ever catch a break whenever the international ‘break’ comes around. Many players eagerly await the chance to get called up by their National team coaches. On the other hand, clubs pray and hope that none of them return injured afterwards.

After German goalkeeper Marc Andre Ter Stegen already made his return to Barcelona due to back problems, concerns were beginning to pile up. Apart from the Barcelona captain, many hoped that no other player would end up getting injured at this crucial part of the season. It seems that it was all wishful thinking.

In the latest clash between Spain and Georgia, Barcelona have lost a key player to injury. 19-year-old Gavi, as reported by SPORT, could be out for the rest of the season itself. His injury is extremely severe and in terms of recovery, it is pessimism that is recommended.

Near the 22nd minute of the game, the youngster went in for a duel against a Georgian player. However, he would come out of that duel holding his right knee and collapsing to the ground. Being the strong-willed individual that he is, however, he tried to continue playing.

Not long after, the Spaniard fell down on the ground again and that was to be the end of him for the game. Within a few minutes, he was replaced and taken for further treatment and simultaneous assessment.

In terms of the classification and type of injury that he has suffered, the latest reports state that it is, in fact, an ACL injury. An injury to the Anterior Cruciate Ligament is one that many footballers fear and others worry for.

The latest update suggests that this marks the end of Gavi’s season. 19 years of age and already such a prominent player in Xavi’s Barcelona this season, it is truly unfortunate and heartbreaking that an injury of such severity made him it’s victim.

Questions will and should undoubtedly be asked of Spain coach Luis de la Fuente as well. The Spaniard chose to play Gavi in this game against Georgia despite his team already having qualified for the Euros. This would have been the perfect opportunity for rotations in a game that has practically nothing at stake for Spain.
