The reason for the delay in Ansu Fati’s return has been speculated about a lot in the last few days, and especially in the last few hours. And it seems that it was due to him getting another operation in January.
Ansu Fati’s knee didn’t respond well to the rehabilitation. It became inflamed when subjected to stress, and that led the player to stop. To take a step back and lengthen the time frame.
But the newspaper ‘AS’, quoting ‘TV3’, claims that there is more to it than that. That Ansu Fati secretly underwent surgery in the middle of January. It appears that the rehabilitation of the left knee was intended to be resumed.
I.e. the reason for the delay in Ansu Fati’s return to the pitch is not only because his knee is feeling the strain. He underwent surgery again precisely to avoid it, and it has not worked.
For that reason, the aforementioned media outlet speculates about the possibility that he has to go under the knife for the third time, which would delay his return even more, which has already missed a scheduled date. Before he was aiming for the middle of March and now it will be April at the earliest.
On the other hand, the newspaper ‘Ara’ and broadcaster ‘Esport3’ explain that said operation may have been related to an allergy in the meniscus suture, which would rule out a third operation.
