La Masia of FC Barcelona has always been a home to generation and exciting talents. In recent years, Ansu Fati is the highest quality product to come from La Masia. He took La Liga by storm at just 16 years of age in the previous campaign. After getting out for a long-term knee injury in November, Ansu’s injury development wasn’t quite as expected, he has to go under the knife for the third time this term. More details follow:

What actually happened with Anssumane Fati?

Barca’s wunderkind was injured against Real Betis on 7th November 2020, as he was expected to return in the final stretch of the current season. But unfortunately, his injury development didn’t go as it was expected as he had to undergo surgery twice. In early 2021, the reports suggested that even after going under the knife twice, Ansu’s knee was still swelling as the recovery process was advancing.

The idea of going through surgery for the third time wasn’t ruled out back then. But recent reports suggest he might have to go through it to finally recover, he’s already ruled out of Spain’s Euro 2020 campaign already. Here is a deeper analysis of what his injury is about.

Ansu Fati knee injury explained:

Basically, the young starlet ruptured his left knee meniscus against Real Betis the last November. After going through two surgeries, doctors were using a bio-regenerative method to heal the broken medial meniscus of his left knee, a process which didn’t bore any fruit and his injury only prolonged. Medial Meniscus is basically the shock absorber that helps to deal with load and weight on the knee. With the third injury insight which Ansu will go under any time now. It is expected that his medial meniscus of the left knee will most likely be partially or completely removed. The treatment will see Fati running within two months.

The good news is his knee problems will be completely solved and he will be up and running in a very short time but there’s a very horrific dark side of it too. Removing the medial/inner meniscus will negatively affect the later stages of his career and he might have to hang the boots at the age of 30-32 when most footballers are in their prime.

Fati’s achievements so far:

Ansu Fati is surely a world-class and generational talent who can reach spectacular heights of success in the beautiful game. His technical, shooting, and tactical ability differentiate him from the crowd and while still being a teenager, he plays like a skilled veteran. He scores loads of goals and is a treat to watch.

He has already broken many records, like being the youngest ever goalscorer in the history of FC Barcelona, he is also the youngest goalscorer in the history of El Clasico. Ansu Fati is also the youngest player ever to score in the Champions League match.
