Barcelona announced via Twitter this morning that Ansu Fait has suffered a hip contusion. The unclear thing is his timetable for recovery and eventual return.

Fati became the youngest player to appear in an El Clasico this week. He also became the youngest to score in the Champions League this month. The youngster has been getting consistent playing time and improving match by match.

This injury is certainly a setback for Fati and his development. However, hopefully the recovery goes well and Fati can return to the pitch healthy and ready to continue helping Barcelona down the stretch run in 2020.
