Arjen Robben undergoes groin surgery

Arjen Robben will be sidelined for the next ten days after undergoing groin surgery in Munich, Bayern announced on Friday. The 27-year-old Netherlands international withdrew from the Dutch squad for the Euro 2012 qualifiers against Moldova and Sweden and returned to Munich on Thursday, reporting immediately to club Chief Medical Officer Dr. Hans-Wilhelm Müller-Wohlfahrt for an examination and treatment.

“Due to a pubic bone inflammation, the player has developed a weak groin [a so-called sportsman's groin, an early-stage hernia] over the last few days. Surgery was successfully performed on the groin injury this morning by Prof. Dr. Dr. Tomas Hoffmann at Maria-Theresia hospital in Munich,“ Dr. Müller-Wohlfahrt commented on Friday. The medical unit expects Robben to resume training in around ten days.

Robben has already missed five weeks of the season after suffering from a persistant pelvic injury and only returned to action in the Bundesliga on 24th September, scoring in the 3-0 win over Bayer 04 Leverkusen.
He subsequently made a brief appearance as a substitute against Manchester City in the Champions League and played 45 minutes in the 0-0 draw at 1899 Hoffenheim last weekend.
