Official: Barcelona defender to undergo surgery after fracturing his foot
Last week, the shocking news of Samuel Umtiti’s renewal with Barcelona until 2024 took the world of football by storm. While initially a subject of criticism, it was revealed that the renewal would help Barça to register Ferran Torres and save up to €6 million.
The Frenchman was praised by the Camp Nou faithful and applauded in training by his peers. He was also reportedly looking for a way out of the club on loan.
No less than seven days later, though, Umtiti has picked up a foot injury. The official statement by the club reads, “Samuel Umtiti took a blow to his right foot in training on Monday and has fractured his fifth metatasar bone. The player will undergo surgery on Tuesday.”
The defender had been relatively injury-free for a while, last picking up a knock in December 2020. A surgery, on top of that, rules out any exit for him in the winter. We wish Umtiti a safe and quick recovery.
