Barcelona news: Pedri decides to avoid surgery after a renewed knee injury

Spanish press reports revealed that the midfielder Barcelona Pedri Gonzalez decided not to undergo surgery, after a renewed knee injury, with the aim of returning before the end of the season if things go well.

Pedri suffered a severe injury during Barcelona’s goalless draw against Athletic Bilbao, which brought together the two teams on Sunday evening at San Mames Stadium, the home base of Bilbao, in the 27th round of the Spanish League.

Radio Catalunya reported that the young player would avoid surgery, which would have ruled him out for the rest of the season, and that could give Pedri a chance to return before the end of the season but would likely make it to the Euros with Spain.

The player limped off due to a new problem, as Pedri went down without being tackled in the first half against Athletic Bilbao, with an initial diagnosis before tests as a hamstring tear.

Although Barcelona lost only two points in this draw, it will lose the services of coach Xavi Hernandez in its next match against Real Mallorca, scheduled to be played next Friday in the twenty-eighth round, in addition to defender Ronald Araujo..

The match witnessed Barcelona defender Ronald Araujo receiving a yellow card in the 32nd minute, and thus he will miss the match against Real Mallorca due to suspension. Coach Xavi Hernandez also received a yellow card from the match referee due to objection. He will also miss the match between Barcelona and Real Mallorca, due to suspension..

In addition, midfield duo Frenkie de Jong and Pedri suffered very severe injuries, as a result of which they left the match, and it seems that the Catalan team will lose their services for a long time..

With this result, Barcelona occupies third place in the Spanish League standings during the current season with 58 points, behind Real Madrid and Girona, who are in first and second places respectively, while Athletic Bilbao is in fifth place with 50 points..
