The week of Barcelona still had a last and unpleasant surprise for its rectors. Luis Surez, who aspired to be able to be off for about five weeks and thus be ready to face Naples in the eighth of the Champions League, face the harsh reality. The same as the doctor explained Ramn Cugat, responsible for the arthroscopy performed this Sunday to resolve his lesion in the external meniscus of the right knee. The medical part was discouraging. Four months off and the hope of being able to face the last month of competition. The Uruguayan striker, that is, should one year more ready to play the Copa Amrica, which has Argentina and Colombia as venues this 2020.

He was already intervened in the same joint last May, after the continental elimination in Anfield against Liverpool. Although his right knee problems have been haunting him since 2017, when he opted for a conservative treatment that would allow him to continue playing.

Surez, who will be on January 24, 33, will miss almost all of the Champions League. You can only return in the case of a final hypothetical. Nor can he play in the current edition of the Copa del Rey, to be played on April 18. As for the League, he will hardly reach the last day (Valladolid), with Osasuna and Alavs as the last rivals.

Barcelona, ​​which had no plans to go to the market in winter, is forced to hire a forward that reduces the responsibility of Ansu Fati or Carles Prez. Last year he opted for Kevin-Prince Boateng, a spectrum in his four months as Barca.
