Iker Casillas: "I want to be soon with my teammates"

Good news for Casillas and Real Madrid. Since yesterday he has not plaster on his left hand. Eleven days after injury he suffered in the first metacarpal of the left hand, things are going better than expected and his reappearance could anticipate a few weeks to three months provided. "First step to recovery. Today the plaster was removed! Happy for it and longing to be with my teammates soon! I send a hug to all!", communicated through his Facebook account. In Instagram posted a picture where you can see the two minimal incisions by where doctors elimanted some bone splinters that were broken and two screws were set.

Although the plaster has been removed, Casillas will remain on bed rest for a few days until callus forms completely. The plaster was replaced by an anatomical splint, less cumbersome and easier to wear. Right now his work is minimal by medical prescription. The training is done in the gym to maintain physical tone. In about eight days will have a review (Real Madrid's doctors are in constant contact with him) and then he will increase slightly the workload.

In principle, Iker Casillas will miss 23 games (13 in the Spanish League, the Spanish Cup semi-final, three matches with the Spain national team and all the Champions League competition until the Final if Real Madrid reaches it). But the idea of the goalkeeper is to be ready and fit for April 15, just a week before the first leg of the semifinals of the Champions League.
