Jerome Boateng out for six weeks after operation

Bayern Munich defender Jerome Boateng has been ruled out for approximately six weeks after undergoing surgery on a pectoral tendon, the Bundesliga champions have announced.

The Germany international has not played since a shaky display in the 3-2 Champions League defeat at Rostov on November 23 and went under the knife in Munich on Tuesday.

The operation was deemed a success with Bayern suggesting the centre-half will be sidelined until early February.

A club statement read: “Prof. Dr. Andreas Imhoff operated on the right pectoral muscle of Jerome Boateng on Tuesday in Munich.”

Bayern doctor Volker Braun added: “The operation went very well. If the healing process is optimal, Jerome Boateng will not be available for about six weeks.”
