Ansu Fati will spend an extra night in the hospital than previously thought, although reports say his surgery to repair the damage to his knee was a success.

He will be out around four months after the operation on his left leg, which was led by Ramon Cugat.

He was supposed to leave the hospital today but instead he will spend another night at the hospital. Still, reports say there is no cause for alarm. Rather, the medical staff thought it was more prudent to play it safe and give him one more night under their supervision at the hospital.

Doctors want to minimize risk for the youngster, whose body is still growing. Hopefully, things will continue on the right path and he will fully heal sooner rather than later.
