Ansu Fati set to undergo surgery on Thursday

Barcelona youngster Ansu Fati will undergo surgery to solve every problem that is associated with the rupture of the internal meniscus in his left knee, which he suffered last November during the game against Real Betis.

This recent development was disclosed by Mundo Deportivo. Ansu Fati, 18, has already undergone surgery at the hands of Dr. Ramon Cugat.

However, his development this season which was supposed to be crucial to his career at Camp Nou has been hampered due to injuries.

He has been scheduled to undergo the surgery next Thursday and will go under the knife of the Portuguese national team doctor, who is one of those that have reviewed his injury in recent times including Gijon’s Dr. Antonio Maestro, and D. Bertrand Sonney-Cottet of Lyon.

The three doctors have been in steady contact with the player in recent weeks and have been working on a highly personalized plan to test the player’s knee and get him back to full fitness.

Their objective was to check the severity of the issue and ascertain if Ansu Fati required surgery. Their findings resulted in a decision on Sunday that he needs the surgery as the joint has not yet recovered.

It is hoped that the surgery will end the player’s meniscus problems while there is a plausible option for a meniscectomy or partial removal of the meniscus.

Hopefully, the procedures will be carried out successfully, and if they are, Ansu Fati will be ruled out of action for two months and will return at the start of next season at full capacity.

Ansu Fati is highly rated at Camp Nou and is one of the club’s youth players who have impressed in recent times.

Injuries have hampered his impact since he became part of the first team and something has to be done to ensure that he reaches his full potential at the club. Hopefully, this surgery will provide a worthwhile solution to his injury worries.
