Tearful Depart of Ferran Torres in the Osasuna Match Adds to Barcelona's Mounting Injury Tally

Posted on February 02, 2024

Ferran Torres was visibly upset as he exited the field during the early stages of the Barcelona vs Osasuna match due to an injury, further adding to the host of injuries that Barcelona is currently dealing with. The events unfolded when Torres chased a football and subsequently pulled up, clutching his hamstring. This setback momentarily led him to conceal his emotional distress by covering his face with his football shirt before he departed the pitch.

In response, Xavi roped in Fermin Lopez as a substitution for the injured player, who donned his new #16 jersey following his assimilation with the first team. This unfortunate incident puts Ferran Torres in a growing list of injuries that the Barcelona team is grappling with. Additions to the list include Marc-Andre ter Stegen, Marcos Alonso, Gavi, Inigo Martinez, Raphinha, Alejandro Balde, and Joao Felix.

Compared to the previous seasons, this term has been considerably improved for Torres, who has managed to score 11 goals in all competitions for Xavi's side. However, his early removal from the match now puts Xavi in a tight spot with limited options for attack, leaving him with Robert Lewandowski, Lamine Yamal, Fermin, and Vitor Roque as active senior forwards.
