The club said the surgery was to correct the defect on her right foot.
“The player had been suffering from discomfort for a few weeks, which had caused her to miss a game, such as the one at Santa Teresa.
“The intervention was given by Dr. Dalmau, under the supervision of the Medical Services of FC Barcelona.
“The evolution of the player will mark her return to the field of play,” the club statement read.
