Fati Leaves Pitch In Tears As Barcelona Crash Out Of Copa De Rey Against Athletic Club

By Daily Sports on January 21, 2022

Ansu Fati left Barcelona's Copa del Rey match in tears on Thursday after sustaining a thigh injury against Athletic Club in extra time.

The forward walked straight down the tunnel upon his exit in the last-16 match, which ended with Barca crashing out in a 3-2 defeat.

Fati, 19, only recently returned from a serious hamstring injury and missed most of last year with knee problems.


Tomorrow we will see [about the extent of the injury]," Xavi told reporters. "He has been affected, but tomorrow we will see the diagnosis."

The manager added that Pedri, Gerard Pique and Jordi Alba also picked up knocks.

On Thursday night, the club stated that Fati had suffered a left biceps femoris injury; that body part is located in the thigh region.

Fati was embraced by manager Xavi before disappearing down the tunnel.

Barcelona fought back to level at 2-2 in stoppage time, with Pedri providing the equaliser, but ultimately were defeated through a 105th-minute goal from Iker Muniain.

Fati had been introduced in the 61st minute as a substitute before his eventual departure. (Goal)
