Barcelona confirm that Ansu Fati suffered another hamstring problem during Thursday's Copa del Rey contest with Athletic Bilbao.

Barcelona have confirmed that Ansu Fati suffered another hamstring problem during Thursday's Copa del Rey last-16 contest with Athletic Bilbao at San Mames.

The Spain international has only just recovered from a hamstring issue, but he suffered a setback after appearing as a second-half substitute against Athletic towards the end of last week.

A statement from Barcelona has confirmed that Fati has picked up another problem with his hamstring, although the Catalan outfit have not offered a potential timeframe for his recovery.

"Tests carried out on the first team player Ansu Fati on Friday confirmed that he has a proximal tendon injury in the hamstring of his left leg. In the coming days the treatment to be carried out will be decided," read a statement from the La Liga club.

The 19-year-old has scored five times and registered one assist in 10 appearances for Xavi's side during the 2021-22 campaign.

Fati recovered from a long-term knee problem to make his first league outing of the season at the end of September but has since found it difficult to stay fit.
