The midfielder was booked early against Getafe
Gavi has made the headlines again with another yellow card in the match against Getafe. It didn't take him a minute to commit the foul that led to the yellow card from the referee, Pulido Santana. This is his seventh yellow card so far this season.
With this new caution, the young midfielder becomes the most cautioned player in the team ahead of Ronald Araujo (6), Raphinha (5) and Ferran Torres (4).
Gavi has been the focus of criticism in several matches due to his aggressiveness on the pitch, which sometimes costs him when he arrives late into a tackle. However, Xavi continues to rely on him as one of the key players in the starting line-up.
Josep Maria Minguella was one of those who has criticised the young player.
"Gavi is a player who comes to the first team in very complicated circumstances, and with his struggle and the mediocrity that exists in the midfield he makes a place for himself in the team," said Messi's former agent.
