Mario Gomez, Bundesliga
The Germany international picked up a knock in Bayern's LIGA Total! Cup participation at the weekend, and will be out of action for a total of six weeks.
"Iím delighted the operation went well and that the pain is gone," Gomez was quoted as saying on the club's official website.
"Iíll need to be a little patient now, but after that Iíll do everything I can to be available for selection again as quickly as possible."
Bayern doctor Hans-Wilhelm Muller-Wohlfahrt explained that the prolific hitman will have to rest for the upcoming three weeks, before starting individual training.
"The operation went extremely well," commented Muller-Wohlfahrt.
"In all likelihood, Mario will have to sit out training for the next three weeks. After that, heíll be able to start on a sports rehab programme."
Gomez is expected to be replaced by either Mario Mandzukic or Claudio Pizarro during his absence.
