Officially…Barcelona star undergoes surgery and is away from the field for a long time

Alejandro Balde, the Barcelona star, decided to undergo surgery to treat his right hamstring injury, ending his chances of participating in any new match this season.

Balde left Barcelona’s match against Athletic Bilbao in the quarter-finals of the Spanish King’s Cup after 23 minutes due to his injury, and Xavi Hernandez later announced that the player needed to undergo surgery.

But it was possible for the player to be treated without undergoing surgery, even if this operation was somewhat dangerous, and in the end, Xavi and the Barcelona administration left the decision to Balde and his family.

On Saturday, Barcelona issued a statement announcing that the player would undergo surgery in Finland, without revealing the duration of his absence from the field.

According to Fabrizio Romano, the left-back will not return this season, and he is expected to be back in Barcelona during the pre-season.

Balde’s absence represents a major blow to Barcelona, given that he will leave only the left front with young player Hector Forte in light of Marcos Alonso’s back injury and his expected absence until March.

Relying on Joao Cancelo in the left-back position could also be a solution, but it will leave a void on the right front, especially after the injury of Sergi Roberto in the past hours.

It remains to be noted that Balde played 28 matches this season in all tournaments with Barcelona, during which he scored one goal and made the same.
