WATCH: Gavi pays emotional visit to see Barcelona team-mates after ACL injury

Gavi has been back at his club on Tuesday to catch up with his Barcelona team-mates after suffering a season-ending injury on Spain duty.
Barcelona shared footage of the teenager on crutches going to see manager Xavi first who receives him with a big hug.
Gavi is then greeted by Inigo Martinez and Marcos Alonso as well as Lamine Yamal and Joao Felix in the gym. There are plenty of cheers and claps for Gavi, who looks clearly emotional, which just shows the affection there is for him at the club.
Finally, the video shows goalkeeper Marc-Andre ter Stegen going over to console his young team-mate and offer a few words of encouragement. Gavi is set to undergo surgery on his ACL tear in the coming days and will then begin what will be a lengthy rehabilitation process.
As for Barca, they are now thinking about Sunday’s La Liga clash with Rayo Vallecano and continuing their campaign without their young midfield dynamo.
