Gerard Pique will ask for a second opinion on his knee injury

Gerard Piqué already knows the extent of his injury. Barcelona confirmed this Sunday that the Barça center-back suffers a grade 3 sprain in the internal lateral ligament with damage to the anterior cruciate. It is a serious injury that could leave Piqué off the pitch for a minimum period of three months.

Once the diagnosis of the Barcelona medical services is known, Gerard Piqué will seek a second opinion on his knee injury and how the treatment should be in the coming months. In this way and as reported by the Sport newspaper, the central will trust doctor Ramón Cugat, a prestigious specialist in this type of injury. Depending on Cugat’s opinion, Piqué could go under the knife to have his right knee operated.

After the tests carried out, Barcelona confirmed this Sunday that Piqué had “a grade 3 sprain in the internal lateral ligament and a partial injury to the anterior cruciate ligament of the right knee.” They did not specify the time of injury: «It is low and the evolution will mark the availability». A time off that will depend on the opinion of Cugat and if he finally goes under the knife.

In the Barcelona squad there is maximum confidence in Ramón Cugat. In fact, was recently in charge of operating Ansu Fati, who broke the inside meniscus of his left knee and had to be admitted to the Quirón Clinic for five days. For this reason, Piqué will trust the prestigious surgeon to return as soon as possible from the serious knee injury he suffered this Saturday against Atlético de Madrid.
