Bayern Munich have announced that Holger Badstuber will be out for 10 months as he recovers from knee surgery.

The central defender tore the anterior cruciate ligament in his knee during the 1-1 draw with Borussia Dortmund at the start of December.

Last week it was revealed that the 24-year-old Germany international’s rehabilitation had been interrupted when he suffered a recurrence of the injury during training.

Badstuber was sent to America to see world-renowned specialist Dr. Richard Steadman but the club have confirmed the extent of his injury will see him sidelined until 2014.

A statement from Bayern read: “On Monday, May 20 2013, Dr. Richard Steadman performed surgery on Holger
Badstuber in Vail, Colorado. Due to extensive ruptures, the player’s
cruciate ligament is no longer functional and was removed.

“Before the
cruciate can be reconstructed using a surgical tissue graft replacement,
the incisions and holes from the original op must heal completely.

“Until then, Holger Badstuber will maintain his physical fitness in
sports rehab. The doctors in charge of the case estimate the player will
be fit again in around 10 months.

“The injury is not
career-threatening.”
