Ansu Fati could return to action for Barcelona against Levante
The winger was injured last November and had been sidelined ever since. Koeman hinted Fati could play fifteen minutes in the game.
Ansu Fati could return to action for Barcelona in the clash against Levante on Saturday evening.
The Blaugrana are currently not in their usual form having dropped four points against, Cadiz and Granada in the past week. They will look to bounce back against the Levante side who have not won a league game in their last 16 matches.
Barcelona is currently in the midst of an injury crisis and has only 17 outfield players available in the squad. One important player who has recovered from injury is Ansu Fati. The youngster was sidelined with a meniscus injury he suffered last November.
The young midfielder, Gavi could start the game once again. Meanwhile, Coutinho could also start the match against Levante given how depleted the squad is. Frenkie De Jong will not be available due to his suspension and manager Ronald Koeman will not be available in the touchline, also due to being sent off against Cadiz.
Koeman hinted in the pre-match press conference that Ansu Fati could play against Levante. He said the player could play a maximum of 15 minutes. He also added Ansu’s integration into the first team will be gradual and will not be rushed.
Koeman is under huge pressure after three win-less runs in both domestic and continental competition. He will not want anything less than three points in today’s game. The Barcelona job has been already linked with the likes of Oscar Garcia, former player Xavi Hernandez and current Belgium boss Roberto Martinez.
Barcelona currently sits in the 8th position in the league with two wins and three draws to their name.
