    José Luis Gayà will not play in the Qatar 2022 World Cup after suffering a sprained ankle. Luis Enrique’s decision leaves the left back out of the World Cup; leaving his position for the blaugrana Alejandro Balde.

    The Valencia captain has published a message on his official Twitter profile: “It is not easy to assimilate that one of your dreams as a child is ruined by a slight sprain, but things sometimes come like that and we must accept them. Now, I will be one more fan who will enjoy every game of La Roja. For this reason, I want to wish my teammates all the luck in the world because I have no doubt that this is the World Cup in Spain. Life goes on”.

    “Today has been the hardest day, I had to tell Jose Luis Gayà to leave due to the immediacy of the matches, it’s a minor injury but I didn’t want to take risks. It is not easy to say this to a player, I can only thank his behaviour, he is a great professional both on and off the pitch and I wish him the best, this is the hardest part of being a coach”, commented Luis Enrique in his ‘ streaming’.
