The 24-year-old suffered the injury towards the end of the FA Cup fifth-round victory over MK Dons and missed the midweek win over Wolves.

A scan confirmed the extent of the damage and he went under the knife on Thursday morning.

Tykes boss David Flitcroft told the club's official website: "It's a massive blow because his form has been incredible.

"I'll sit down with Scott at some point and we'll through his objectives for pre-season."

Golbourne had made 35 appearances for the club this season, scoring once in the 3-2 win at Middlesbrough.

t's why Mourinho is so successful. He gives players a specific, limited set of functions to perform. They are but a cog in a machine. Do no more, do no less. I assume he learnt it from LvG :)

really hope that someone in the mainstream media spots that the Bayern manager played for and managed Barcelona quite well, and thinks to mention it in the build up. That would be really interesting.
