Ansu Fati will not be operated due to the injury in the Copa del Rey

The young FC Barcelona attacker will follow a conservative recovery plan, the Catalan club reported on Tuesday.

Ansu Fati will not undergo surgery after an old injury to his left leg worsened, and the Barcelona striker will opt for a “conservative” treatment plan, the club reported on Tuesday.

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

“First team player Ansu Fati will follow a conservative recovery plan from the left proximal hamstring injury,” Barcelona said in a statement. “His recovery will dictate his return.”

Fati, who took over Barcelona’s number 10 shirt from Lionel Messi when the Argentine left for Paris St Germain, came through the Catalan club’s youth academy but has been plagued by injuries.

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