Pedri’s injury woes continue. The Barcelona midfielder, who has already missed a significant chunk of the season, could be out for even longer than initially thought.
According to Spanish newspaper Mundo Deportivo, Pedri will not be back until the end of January. This would mean he would miss the Spanish Super Cup, which will be played in Saudi Arabia in the first two weeks of January. In the semifinals, Barcelona will face Osasuna on January 11, with the final taking place three days later. The Catalans’ next major fixture after that will be in the Champions League against Napoli.
Pedri’s absence is a blow for Barcelona, who are already without a number of key players. The 19-year-old is one of the club’s most important players, and his creativity and passing ability will be sorely missed.
It is unclear what caused Pedri’s injury. The club initially said it was a minor muscle strain, but Mundo Deportivo reports that it is more serious than that. The newspaper says that Pedri has been suffering from fatigue and that the club is worried about his long-term fitness.
Pedri has already missed 28 games for Barcelona this season. He has been injured four times, including a hamstring injury that kept him out for three months.
The teenager is one of the most promising young players in the world, but his injury problems are a concern. He will need to stay fit if he is to reach his full potential.
Pedri’s absence could have a significant impact on Barcelona’s season. The club are currently in seventh place in La Liga, and they are looking to improve their position and qualify for the Champions League next season. Pedri’s creativity and passing ability would be a valuable asset to Barcelona in their quest to achieve their goals.
