MADRID - Gonzalo Higuain is confident he
will be back in action before the end of the season after back
surgery, the Real Madrid striker said on Thursday.
"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, who have said they want to bring in another striker in
the January transfer window as a temporary replacement for
Higuain, are four points behind leaders Barcelona at the halfway
stage of the campaign and host Real Mallorca on Sunday.
Their final match of the season is at home to Almeria on the
weekend of May 21/22.
