Casillas is sidelined for three months

The keeper was kicked in the hand at 18 minutes of the Cup match against Valencia

The club officials claimed that x-ray check showed that Casillas suffered a fracture at the base of the first metacarpal on his left hand

“The injury will be assessed again by a specialist later today to decide what treatment will be followed,” Real statement reads.

The treatment is likely to take up to three months according to the reports which means the shot-stopper will miss the Champions League clashes with Manchester United in February. Antonio Adan who was selected by Jose Mourinho in several previous fixtures causing fans’ dissatisfaction will replace the player.
