Barca's Fati Opts For 'Conservative' Treatment Not Surgery

Barcelona No. 10 Ansu Fati will not undergo surgery after aggravating an old leg injury, with the Barcelona forward opting for a "conservative" treatment plan, the club disclosed on Tuesday.

The 19-year-old was injured during Barcelona's 3-2 extra-time defeat by Athletic Bilbao in the Copa del Rey on 20 January, his second appearance for the club after returning from a two-month spell on the sidelines.

"The first team player Ansu Fati will follow a conservative recovery plan for the injury to the proximal tendon in his left hamstring," Barcelona said in a statement. "His recovery will dictate his return."

Fati has been plagued with injuries since inheriting Barcelona's number 10 jersey from Lionel Messi when the Argentine left for Paris St Germain.

He underwent four surgeries to repair a knee injury sustained in November 2020.
