James Rodriguez undergoes successful surgery

February 6, 2015 6:27 pm
James Rodriguez has undergone surgery on a broken metatarsal sustained in Real Madrid’s 2-1 victory over Sevilla on Wednesday.
The
23-year-old opened the scoring with a diving header on 12 minutes but
was substituted 15 minutes later after picking up the injury. The
Colombia star was forced from the field of play on Wednesday night and
has now gone under the knife, with the injury expected to keep him out
until the end of March

Madrid
announced the break required an operation and James has now gone under
the knife in a bid to cure the problem, with the club revealing it was a
complete success.
A statement on their website read: “’s
has undergone surgery onthe fracture he suffered in the
fifth metatarsal in his right foot.
“The operation was a complete
success and was carried out by Doctor Mariano de Prado under the
supervision of Doctor Jesus Olmo, the Real Madrid C. F. doctor.”
Madrid
offered now timescale for his recovery but early reports have claimed
his length of absence is likely to be around two months.
That lay-off
would mean the Colombia international will miss both legs of Madrid’s
last-16 Champions League tie with Schalke and possibly the Clasico clash
with Barcelona on March 22.
Sergio Ramos could also be set for a
spell on the sidelines after picking up a hamstring on Wednesday, though
the Champions League winners have yet to reveal the full severity of
his problem.
