Juventus have confirmed Gonzalo Higuain’s surgery was “concluded successfully”, but haven’t offered a recovery time.
The striker looks set to miss the trip to face his former side Napoli on Friday, having broken the third metacarpal on his left hand.
Today he underwent surgery at the Sedes Sapientiae clinic, and the Bianconeri have confirmed it was successful.
“Gonzalo Higuain today underwent surgery on the fractured finger bone in his left hand,” Juve said in a statement on their official website.
“The operation, which lasted approximately 45 minutes and concluded successfully, was carried out by Doctor L. Pegoli, Professor R. Rossi and J Medical staff, in the attendance of Club Doctor, Claudio Rigo, at the Sede Sapientiae di Torino clinic.
“Higuain’s return date to team action will be defined over the coming days.”
