It was expected that the player would be out of play for roughly four months. However, when the knee injury didn’t seem to heal after several surgeries, reports suggest that Ansu Fati will be out for six to eight more weeks. Ansu’s teammates are worried that the season might already be over for him because he was meant to be amongst the Spanish team for the European Championship which is to take place in summer.
Although Ansu ignored his birth country Guinea-Bissau to play for Spain, he has continued to shine and position himself as a star player. His efforts have also gained him lots of fans from his home country and football fans across the African continent.
