The injury suffered by Gavi in the Euro 2024 qualifying match is so serious that the 19-year-old may not play again this season. What’s more, the midfielder may also miss the European Championships and the Olympic Games.
Spanish media, citing sources in the Spanish federation (RFEF), unanimously report that Gavi tore the anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee. This means that he will have an approximate break of 6 to 8 months.
If the RFEF or Barcelona confirm this with an official announcement, Gavi He will not appear on the field again in the 2023/24 season. He will also not take part in Euro 2024 and the Olympic Games in Paris.
These pictures are chilling. Gavi suffered the injury in the 20th minute of the match without contact with the opponent. When he tried to control the upper pass, he misplaced his right foot and interrupted the action. He left the pitch on his own but screamed in pain as he tried to walk towards the bench.

The 19-year-old had been under heavy abuse for several months. Last season, he played in 49 matches for Barcelona and 11 for the Spanish national team. And the meeting with Georgia was his 21st this season.
Marta Maron from RAC1 reported on the “X” platform (formerly Twitter) that “Barcelona is angry with coach De La Fuente that Gavi played in every match of the national team, although he had alternatives.”
It is worth quoting the statement of the Spanish national team manager before the match against Georgia: – Gavi is hyperactive. It doesn’t stop. He always wants to play. Good footballers never rest. That’s why they are so good and special.
– You have to dose these efforts, but when you are young… Moreover, he is physically super gifted. It’s November, the players are still fresh at this time – said the coach before the match.
The result of the match against Georgia did not matter for Spain in the context of the fight to advance to Euro 2024. La Furia Roja had already secured participation in the championship.
