Real Madrid star Gonzalo Higuain has declared that he is confident of returning to action before the end of the season.
“Everything went very well, as we expected,” the Argentina international told reporters after arriving back in the Spanish capital from Chicago following an operation on his lower back.
“Yesterday I checked in with the doctor and everything is fine,” added the 23-year-old, whom Real said would be out for around four months.
“Almost all the pain has gone in my leg, which was preventing me from playing, and I am now already thinking only about returning to action as soon as possible.
“I am completely confident I’ll be able to come back before the season finishes.”
Real Madrid’s final match of the season is at home to Almeria on the weekend of May 21/22.
