Very bad news for Leicester and for the English team: the winger Harvey Barnes, one of the key pieces of the ‘Foxes’, will be out for the remainder of the season and will even miss the European Championship after undergoing a second operation in knee.
Barnes suffered a relapse during his rehabilitation period from an injury he sustained against Arsenal on February 28 and, as explained by Leicester coach Brendan Rodgers, requires “a minor operation just to heal some of the damage to his knee.”
Always according to Rodgers, Harvey Barnes will no longer play this course, but will be ready for the preseason.
Barnes made his England debut in a Gareth Southgate win over Wales in a friendly match last October and seemed to have a chance of making the ‘pross’ list a decent chance to join Gareth Southgate’s team to Euro 2021, which takes place from June 11 to July 11.
Harvey Barnes has been one of Leicester’s best players this season, scoring 13 goals in all competitions. Brendan Rodgers’ team, who visit Southampton this Friday, are 3rd in the Premier League and are close to qualifying for the Champions League for the second time.
