The unfortunate injury to Barcelona’s rising star, Gavi, has left the team reeling as they prepare to face Rayo Vallecano this weekend. Coach Xavi Hernández expressed the irreplaceable nature of the 19-year-old’s contribution to the team and the difficulty of finding solutions without him. In addition to discussing Gavi’s injury, Xavi also spoke about the challenges of international football scheduling and the impact it has on players and their health. With key players like Marc-André ter Stegen also sidelined, Barcelona faces a challenging period as they juggle the demands of domestic and European competition.

Barcelona Coach Xavi Hernandez Speaks Out After Gavi’s Season-Ending Injury

Barcelona coach Xavi Hernandez has expressed his disappointment and frustration after midfielder Gavi suffered a torn ACL while playing for Spain, ruling him out for the rest of the season. Hernandez stated that Gavi’s absence will be a “huge loss” for the team and noted that the 19-year-old’s passion and courage on the field will be sorely missed.

In addition, Hernandez also addressed concerns about the scheduling of international football games, suggesting that FIFA should consider implementing a system that allows players more time with their club teams and less traveling during international breaks.

Meanwhile, Barcelona will also be without goalkeeper Marc-Andre ter Stegen for their upcoming match against Rayo Vallecano, with Iñaki Peña slated to step in. However, midfielder Frenkie de Jong is set to return to action after a two-month injury layoff, providing a much-needed boost to the team.

Barcelona currently sits third in the LaLiga table, behind Real Madrid and surprise leaders Girona. The team will face important upcoming fixtures against FC Porto and Atletico Madrid as they set their sights on success in both domestic and European competitions.
