Gavi, the Barcelona midfielder, has had a successful operation on his right knee.
During the first half of Spain’s Euro 2024 qualifier against Georgia earlier this month, the 19-year-old tore his anterior cruciate ligament and damaged the lateral meniscus.
The news was devastating for both club and country, as Gavi had established himself as a key player for both. He will miss the rest of the season as well as the European Championship next summer.
Today, Gavi had a successful operation on his torn right knee anterior cruciate ligament as well as a meniscus suture. Doctor Joan Carles Monllau performed the intervention at Hospital de Barcelona under the supervision of the Club’s Medical Services.
“First team player Gavi had a successful operation on his torn right knee anterior cruciate ligament plus a meniscus suture today,” Barcelona said in a statement.
“Doctor Joan Carles Monllau performed the intervention at Hospital de Barcelona under the supervision of the club’s medical services.” His recovery time will determine when he is ready to rejoin the squad.”
Gavi has appeared in over 100 games for Barcelona since breaking into the team in 2021.
He won the Kopa Trophy for best young player at the 2022 Ballon d’Or and the Golden Boy award last season.
