Ansu Fati’s season is over, it seems.
The Barcelona winger has encountered another barrier in his rehabilitation from a knee injury.
His initial return date was set for March 10, but it was then moved to late April.
Now, there are legitimate concerns that Fati will not be seen until next season.
He could thus need a third operation, potentially ending his season.
According to Catalunya Radio, the second operation did not resolve the issue.
The latest surgery had already delayed his recovery. However, it proved to be more difficult than doctors had expected.
Then, Fati picked up a knee infection in March, which obviously complicated matters.
It forced the teenager to postpone a decision on a new operation, which he has still not officially made.
So, his knee has yet to recover. And he is nowhere near able to even consider a return to action.
