Mateta undergoes knee operation

Attacker to miss several months – Schöder to look at transfer market

Striker Mateta is set to miss at least three months.

Jean-Philippe Mateta underwent surgery on his right knee in Munich on Monday. The forward had sustained a meniscus injury the previous week during training. Mateta will be out of action for at least three months.

“The news on the time out is very difficult to take, as we will now be without one of our best goal scorers from the previous season for the next few months. Due to this and the injury to Dong-Wong Ji, we will now look into the market for players that meet our footballing and financial criteria in order to replace the quality that we have lost in the short-term,” said sporting director Rouven Schröder.
