According to Mundo Deportivo, Ansu Fati will undergo surgery with the goal of permanently resolving the issues caused by the rupture of the internal meniscus in his left knee last November during a match against Real Betis. The Barcelona forward, who is only 18 years old, has already undergone surgery by Dr. Ramon Cugat and has had a crucial season in his development as a footballer completely disrupted by injury.
Dr. Antonio Maestro of Gijon and Dr. Bertrand Sonnery-Cottet of Lyon are among those who have examined the teen’s injury recently. The three doctors have been in constant contact over the last few weeks, devising a highly individualized plan to assess Ansu’s knee and assist him in regaining full fitness.
Their goal had been to see if Ansu needed surgery, and they decided on Sunday that he did because the joint had not recovered. Ansu’s meniscus problems are expected to be resolved by surgery, with a meniscectomy or partial removal of the meniscus being a viable option. Should everything go according to plan, Ansu will miss two months of action before returning to full strength for the start of next season.
