Pedri’s Euro 2024 Dreams Dashed by Knee Injury: What It Means for Spain and Barcelona

Barcelona and Spain midfielder Pedri is out of Euro 2024 after suffering a knee injury during the opening match against Germany.

Here’s a quick rundown of the situation:

Injury: Grade 2 sprain in his left knee
Cause: A tackle by German midfielder Toni Kroos in the early minutes of the match
Recovery Timeline: Expected to be out for at least 6-8 weeks, meaning he’ll miss the rest of the Euros but could be ready for the start of Barcelona’s season.
Additional Notes:

  • Pedri will remain with the Spanish squad in Germany for support and to begin his recovery process.
  • This is a new type of injury for Pedri, who has previously battled muscle issues.
  • Barcelona may be entitled to compensation from UEFA due to the injury sustained on international duty.

This is a blow for both Spain and Barcelona. Pedri is a key player for both teams, and his absence will be felt. However, the positive news is that the injury is not believed to be long-term, and he should be back on the pitch soon.
