Real Madrid rocked as Casillas facing 3-months out

Real Madrid have been rocked by Iker Casillas' finger injury.

Casillas could be sidelined for up to three months after successfully undergoing surgery on a broken bone in his left hand.

Doctor Miguel del Cerro, who performed the operation, said in AS: "The operation has gone very well. He will be out for between eight to 12 weeks."

Madrid medical chief Carlos Diez said in a statement on his club's website: "Everything has been phenomenal. Two screws were put in and the hand has been perfect. It has been a complete success from a surgical point of view."

Casillas will now miss the Copa del Rey semi-final double-header against Barcelona, the Champions League last-16 tie with Manchester United and a host of Primera Division matches.
