Severe injuries do not leave Barcelona… Xavi announces shocking news

Barcelona coach Xavi Hernandez announced that Alejandro Balde needs surgery that will keep him out of the field for a long time.

The left-back suffered a muscle tear during his participation last Wednesday in his team’s match against Athletic Bilbao in the quarter-finals of the Spanish King’s Cup, and the reports were not promising from the beginning.

According to what Xavi said in the press conference for the Villarreal match, the injury is bad and the first recommendation from the doctors is that he undergo surgery.

The Catalan coach continued, “We have met with the player and his family, and now the decision is in his hands to undergo surgery or not. It is a difficult moment for him, but he has to decide.”

He concluded, “His injury is different from Ansu Fati’s injury. In the end, we will support him in every decision. All we want is for him to recover in the best possible way.”

Whether the 20-year-old undergoes surgery or not, it is expected that his season with Barcelona will be over, or at best he will return at the end of next April.

Barcelona now has only two options on the left front, the first is to rely on the young man Hector Forte, and the other is to move Joao Cancelo from right to left temporarily.

It is noteworthy that Barcelona will lose the services of Gavi for the end of the season, and is already suffering from the absence of Ter Stegen, Iñago Martinez and Marcos Alonso due to injury.
