According to Spanish newspaper Marca, Luis De la Fuente (62) had a difficult day as a coach on Sunday. During the match between Spain and Georgia in the Euros qualifiers, young Spanish talent Gavi (19) was forced to leave the game in the 26th minute due to pain in his right knee. The atmosphere in the dressing room was somber, and it is expected that Gavi’s injury will be confirmed by the club later today.
Meanwhile, Mundo Deportivo reported that there was great anger in Barcelona over the situation. The team is upset that their player had to play in a match that was irrelevant for them, as they had already secured a place in the Euros earlier. They could potentially receive a consolation prize of between four and five million euros as compensation from FIFA for their troubles.
