Chelsea midfielder Cesc Fabregas undergoes successful surgery on broken nose

The Chelsea midfielder Cesc Fàbregas has undergone a successful operation to repair his broken nose.

The Spaniard suffered the injury in a clash with Stoke City’s Charlie Adam in early April and was forced to play the remainder of the season wearing a protective mask.

However, the club has now confirmed the 28-year-old has had the problem rectified and the Spain coach, Vicente del Bosque, revealed at his squad announcement earlier this week that he expects him to feature in the upcoming matches against Costa Rica and Belarus.
“Cesc Fàbregas has successfully undergone surgery on his broken nose,” said a statement on Chelsea’s official website.“The midfielder had been having difficulty breathing as a result of the injury he sustained during our game against Stoke last month but after the successful operation the problem has been resolved.”
