Casillas out for three months

Real Madrid goalkeeper Iker Casillas could be sidelined for up to three months after successfully undergoing surgery on a broken bone in his left hand caused during Real Madrid's 1-1 Copa del Rey quarter-final second leg at Valencia on Wednesday night.

Casillas, 31, has been left out of the side of late with Antonio Adan controversially picked by coach Jose Mourinho ahead of the Spain international in a handful of recent matches.

Having gone the knife during an hour-long operation in Madrid on Friday, doctor Miguel del Cerro, who performed the operation, told 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 - the next league meeting against Barcelona at the Bernabeu is in early March.
