A midfielder of the Spanish and Barcelona national teams, Gavi suffered a serious knee injury during the 3-1 victory against Georgia in the Euro 2024 qualifying round. The authorities of the Catalan club are considering submitting a formal complaint to the domestic federation.
After jumping to control the ball, the 19-year-old accidentally landed on the pitch and left the field in Valladolid in tears in the 26th minute.
The authorities of Barca, whose player is also Robert Lewandowski, do not hide their outrage at the way the national team coach Luis de la Fuente manages the squad. The match against Georgia was practically meaningless for Spain. “La Roja” had already secured promotion to the Euro 2024 finals. For this reason, the coach decided to make a number of rotations compared to the match against Cyprus. Only two players played in both of these matches in the starting lineup. They were Robin Le Normand and Gavi. Interestingly, the Real Sociedad stopper left the field after 45 minutes in the match against Cyprus. Only the Barcelona player was in the starting lineup after playing a full match just a few days earlier.

Gavi has played in all the national team’s matches since de la Fuente took over. The young midfielder was a first-team player in 23 games, and came on the pitch from the bench in four more. In this situation, the Catalan club is considering submitting a formal complaint to the federation or a more informal solution – expressing dissatisfaction directly through president Joan Laporta.
Barcelona midfielder Gavi will be sidelined for several months because he will undergo surgery after tearing his anterior cruciate ligament, the Spanish Premier League club announced on Monday. This puts a big question mark over his participation in the European Football Championships.-
– This is the worst part of football. This is the most bitter victory I have ever experienced in my life. Let’s wait until the tests confirm the type of injury, said coach de la Fuente.
Spain, which had already sealed its place at next year’s European Championships, beat Georgia 3-1 to finish top of Group A, ahead of Scotland.
