Ansu Fati leaves pitch in tears after injury against Athletic Club

Barcelona suffered a triple injury blow as they bowed out of the Copa del Rey after losing 3-2 away at Athletic Bilbao on Thursday night. 

Ansu Fati, who is only returning from yet another injury left the pitch in tears early in extra time with what is suspected to be a thigh injury. 

The 19-year-old forward missed a huge chunk of last season with a serious knee injury, which badly hampered his development. 

Speaking after the match, coach Xavi Hernadez said they will have further tests to know the extent of the injury. 

"Tomorrow we will see [about the extent of the injury]," Xavi told reporters. "He has been affected, but tomorrow we will see the diagnosis,"

Xavi also revealed there were further injuries to Pedri, Gerard Pique, and Jordi Alba.

It's been a season to forget for Barcelona, who recently lost to fierce rivals Real Madrid in the semi-finals of the Spanish Super Cup. 

Up next, they take on Alaves in the Spanish LaLiga
