Bad news for Sergi Roberto. The Barça footballer was in the final stretch of his recovery. Everything indicated that he would receive a medical discharge to play against Mallorca. Still, the azulgrana has relapsed and could be out for five or six weeks, so he will not play again for the rest of the season.
Mundo Deportivo published that Sergi Roberto had suffered a step backward in his recovery. The worst omens have been confirmed. It should be remembered that the Barça ’20’ underwent surgery on December 9 in Finland to correct the rupture of the joint tendon of the hamstrings in his left leg. Since then, he has not played again.
After Sergi Roberto’s new relapse, Barça has been sensitive to his situation. Both coach Xavi Hernández and president Joan Laporta have maintained their intention to renew the footballer, whose contract ends on June 30. In the absence of confirmation of the signing date, Sergi Roberto’s new contract will reduce almost 60% of his current salary after the player has also accepted this downward proposal taking into account the delicate situation of club finances.
