Luis Suarez has been off form lately, and many fans have been wondering what is wrong with the FC Barcelona superstar. Here’s part of it: he has been playing with a cyst in his knee, according to Catradio Esports. The player already missed time earlier in the season and he has struggled to find form, leading to speculation he didn’t heal fully.

The report says Suarez has been playing with discomfort, but surgery to remove it is an option. However, until now, the medical team has taken a conservative approach, hoping to avoid surgery.

They await Suarez’s return from South America, where he is playing qualifiers with his national team. If he continues doing better, they will continue this conservative approach.

The good news is even if surgery is required, the intervention is considered simple and the recovery time is projected to be less than two weeks.
