Less than two weeks ago, Barcelona’s Gavi suffered a serious injury in the European Championship qualifiers. Due to a ruptured cruciate ligament, the 19-year-old midfielder will miss the rest of the season and possibly also the European Championship in Germany. His club was angry with the federation and with the Spanish national team coach, Luis de la Fuente.

The Catalans accused the 62-year-old of risking Gavi’s health by using him in an insignificant match. Spain had already topped the group before beating Georgia 3-1. Gavi was the only player in the starting lineup to actually play the full distance against Cyprus three days earlier. Now Barcelona’s excitement appears in a completely different light.

According to the Spanish newspaper “Sports» The professionals spoke clearly against the trip to coach Xavi and the board of directors around president Joan Laporta. That’s why Robert Lewandowski and Co. must be mollified with financial support, the report says. Accordingly, each player receives a reward of 100 thousand euros so that no one will have negative comments about the flight, which totals 28 hours of flight.
