first_imgLuis Suarez has decided to take the bull by the horns to solve once and for all his discomfort in the right knee. Charrúa striker will be intervened this Sunday for an injury to the external meniscus in order to put an end to the inflitrations before the matches and the ice packs to eradicate the inflammation after the matches. LaLiga Santander* Data updated as of January 11, 2020 So that, more problems for Ernesto Valverde in the lead: down from Suarez we must add that of the Frenchman Ousmane Dembélé, who still has a month of recovery at least, so he only has two strikers in the first team: Leo Messi and Antoine Griezmann. That means more than ever that the coach will have to bet in the next matches for the attackers of the subsidiary: Ansu Fati and Carles Pérez. Although the club did not anticipate a recovery forecast, in principle the expected time for the player to return to the pitch is five to six weeks. That means that it would be fully available for the Champions League game against Naples, which will be played on February 25. Luis Suarez would thus lose a minimum of five LaLiga matches – Granada, Valencia, Levante, Betis and Getafe – in addition to the Copa del Rey matches yet to be determined. His return could occur in the face of the match against Eibar at the Camp Nou that will be played on February 22, as a prelude to the first leg of the Champions League against Naples. The operation will be carried out by the surgeon Ramón Cugat, under the supervision of the Blaugrana doctors. In fact Cugat already intervened Luis Suarez at the end of last season when he had an arthroscopy on his right knee, which dragged some controversy because it prevented him from playing the final of the Copa del Rey against Valencia, but he did open the doors to participate with his selection in the Copa América, since in three weeks he was already exercising with his teammates the light blue.last_img read more
