Fati suffers hip injury in Barcelona training

Barcelona forward Ansu Fati has sustained a hip injury during training as the start of the club’s LaLiga campaign moves closer.

Fati suffered a contusion to his right hip as he took part in a session on Friday.

“He is out and his recovery will determine his availability,” confirmed Barca in a statement.

The problem is expected to rule Fati out of Saturday’s friendly against Gimnastic.

Barca are due to begin their league campaign on the weekend of September 26/27 at home to Villarreal, with Fati likely to receive a bigger role under new head coach Ronald Koeman this season.

The 17-year-old scored seven times in 24 league outings in 2019-20, just 11 of which were starts.

Fati made a magnificent start to his Spain career during the international break, becoming the country’s youngest goalscorer in a Nations League match against Ukraine three days after making his debut against Germany.
