Atletico Madrid's Gabi has successful operation on two broken fingers

Atletico Madrid captain Gabi has undergone surgery after the club confirmed on Monday that he had broken two fingers.

Multiple reports in Spain said Gabi was injured in a "domestic accident."

A statement on Atletico's official website read: "Gabi was successfully operated on for the fractures that he suffered in the fourth and fifth metacarpal bone of his right hand.

"The midfielder underwent a reduction surgery on the fracture and it was fixed in the fourth metacarpal bone with a plate and screws and in the fifth with an intramedullary screw."

Gabi played at Valencia on Sunday with his hand in bandages and is a doubt for the weekend's clash at Granada.

He is suspended for next week's second leg of Atletico's Champions League round-of-16 clash against Bayer Leverkusen.
