It is truly a sad day at FC Barcelona given the recent incident involving Gavi. The youngster remains one of the brightest talents produced by Barcelona in recent memory and he has already become a staple of Xavi’s side in recent seasons.
His tenacity, heart, drive and technical ability all combine to create a magical teenage sensation. Already a winner of both the Golden Boy award and the Kopa Trophy, his loss comes as a massive blow to the Catalan giants.
However, he does not remain alone nor does he remain forgotten. Many teammates, both presently and former, as well as direct rivals, have taken to social media to offer their support and positive words for the young Barcelona gem.
Pedri, his Barcelona and Spain teammate, took to social media platform X and showed his brotherhood for the injured Gavi:
“We are with you, brother! I know you will come back stronger than ever. Lots of strength, Gavi!”
Another teammate at Barcelona, Joao Cancelo, also took to Instagram (h/t Barca Times) to show support and love for the Barça youngster:
“I’m with you brother. You’ll come back stronger! I love you, my warrior.”
Former captain and Barcelona legend Sergio Busquets also spoke up about Gavi’s injury and publicly gave him words of encouragement (h/t Barca Buzz):
“Knowing you, you will come back stronger. Animo animal.”
Even Joselu, who is a player for Real Madrid and thus a direct rival of FC Barcelona, stood with Gavi with kind words on Instagram (h/t Madrid Zone):
“We are with you. You will come back stronger than ever!!!”
Barcelona teammate Raphinha, currently on international duty with Brazil, made sure not to forget his friend and teammate as well (h/t Barca Buzz):
“Get well soon as soon as possible my brother, be strong as you are. I love you.”
Many others on social media have also come out to spread positivity towards the injured youngster. For now, there remains no official confirmation about the exact extent of the injury but many reports claim it to be an ACL injury. Such injuries can typically even rule out players for entire seasons, depending on the severity.
