La Liga giants FC Barcelona received a severe blow on the personal front on Thursday amid claims that Pedri González will not be back in action until the new year.

Assembly problems

The subject of the treatment table at Camp Nou, of course, has been a major topic of conversation during the first months of the campaign.

This comes with Barca having been forced to deal with a frankly alarming stretch of torrid luck on the injury front.

Although the season is only a few months old, now, all of Gerard Piqué, Eric García, Jordi Alba, Sergino Dest, Alejandro Balde, Sergi Roberto, Oscar Mingueza, Ronald Araujo, Frenkie de Jong, Pedri, Philippe Coutiinho, Ousmane Dembele, Ansu Fati, Martin Braithwaite and Sergio Agüero have been forced to commit spells in the guidelines, for one reason or another.

In turn, it’s safe to say that, as the campaign moves into the hectic list of holiday games, the last thing new Blaugrana manager Xavi Hernández would have wanted to hear was of yet another new injury concern.

However, as mentioned above, this Thursday, this is precisely what has been taking place in the Catalan capital.

Pedri last

According to a report by the Spanish newspaper Diario AS, it seems unlikely that Pedri will mark his return to the field until the new year at the earliest.

The midfield star, who has not participated in competitive action since late September due to a quadriceps injury, suffered a serious setback amid his efforts to regain fitness last week.

With this evolution having marked its 2nd setback in a matter of weeks, Xavi and company, in turn, have made the decision to allow Pedri to start his recovery program ‘from scratch’.

Therefore, the 19-year-old, named the ‘Golden Boy’ of world football just a few days ago, will begin an extensive period of rehabilitation this week, hoping to see the second half of the campaign without further problems.
