Peruvian Soccer Star Guerrero Has Surgery

Peruvian soccer star Paolo Guerrero left an upbeat and positive message on his Facebook page Thursday morning after having surgery to repair a fracture in his left foot. Guerrero, sitting on a hospital bed surrounded by doctors and medical staff wearing scrubs and giving a thumbs up, looked confident and comfortable. 
"Thank God, the operation went very well, with my family and friends to keep me company. Thanks to everyone for the messages and the good vibes at this time. Now it's back to hard work to get back to making goals," Guerrero wrote. 
The surgery took place in San Paolo, Brazil and was postponed one day because of "emotional issues" on the part of Guerrero. The surgery was to repair a fracture in the fifth metatarsal of his left foot. El Comercio reports that the recovery time for this surgery is about three months. 
The 29 year old was ruled out for the rest of the 2013 season after fracturing his fifth metatarsal during the Corinthians' 0-0 draw with Atletico Minerio on October 6th. Besides playing for the Peruvian national team, Guerrero also plays for the Brazilian club Corinthians. This injury prevented him from playing in Peru's final two World Cup qualifiers against Argentina in Buenos Aires and Bolivia in Lima.
