Javi Martinez: Groin problem

The Spanish midfielder has been carrying the injury for several weeks and has now decided to go under the knife rather than continue with more conservative treatment.

Bayern club doctors advised him to undergo an operation to eradicate the problem, even if it rules him out of Bayern's first Champions League fixture of the season against CSKA Moscow.

"I'm on my way to the clinic for an operation," Martinez wrote on Twitter on Tuesday. "I'm sure it will all go well."

Bayern are also without Mario Gotze, Bastian Schweinsteiger and Thiago Alcantara and could therefore be short of midfielders when they face Hannover after the international break.

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
