FC Barcelona are currently struggling to find the right way of dealing with Gavi’s recent injury. The gem from La Masia has recently succumbed to a serious injury while playing for Spain. In the latest European qualifier against Georgia, it is reported that he may have torn his ACL.

Over the last few hours, words of support and kindness have come from all over the internet. Many players, both teammates and rivals, have addressed his injury and sent words of positivity to the Barcelona player. However, it is perhaps the words of the youngster himself that are the most gut-wrenching.

In the latest update provided by Mundo Deportivo, it is being reported that Gavi did not take too well to the news he received from the doctors. Only just 19, upon hearing the initial diagnosis of a potential ACL injury, the young teenager was in disbelief:

“It can’t be, it can’t be, why me!?”

The player’s screams and tears were there for all to see and hear within the dressing room. Many reports even claim that after going for his diagnosis the youngster could not stop crying both from physical pain as well as emotional frustration at his situation.

Gavi remains an extremely competitive player, and it is believable that his reaction to such unfortunate news would have been extreme as well. Driven by his desire to play and compete, he will now be forced to watch on from the sidelines as the season goes on.

Barcelona will now turn their heads towards the midfielders that they can rely on. Pedri has fully recovered while Frenkie De Jong is expected to be back for the next game. That leaves only Gavi and Sergi Roberto as the long-term injuries in the midfield.

As per the latest reports, Gavi could see his recovery time last anywhere between four months or the entire season. While fans of Barcelona will hope he returns as soon as possible, the reality is that such an injury should not have been allowed in the first place.

Tensions remain high between Barça and Luis de la Fuente, whose decision to play Gavi in an unimportant game has caused genuine frustration.
