Gomez back in six weeks

Bayern Munich striker Mario Gomez will be back in action in six weeks after undergoing ankle surgery on Tuesday, according to the club doctor Hans-Wilhelm Muller-Wohlfahrt.

Gomez, 27, picked up the injury in Bayern Munich's Liga Total Cup semi final clash against Werder Bremen and will be sidelined for the club's first game of the season against league new-boys SpVgg Greuther Furth on August 25.

However Bayern doctor Muller-Wohlfahrt - who is also a medical advisor to two-time Olympic 100m champion Usain Bolt - said in a statement on the club's official website: "The surgery went very well. Mario has to rest for three weeks and then start rehabilitation training."

Gomez added: "I am relieved the surgery went well and I am no longer in pain. I need to be patient now, but will do everything I can to be back on the pitch as soon as possible."

New €13 million signing Mario Madzukic is set to replace Gomez for the first weeks of the Bundesliga season and Bayern coach Jupp Heynckes has been impressed by his performances in a central role.

Despite now having the opportunity to show what he can do, however, the Croatia striker is sad that Gomez will miss the start of the campaign. "It is bitter for us, all players are important to us and so is Gomez," Madzukic said. "But if I play, I will be ready to show my best".

Bayern president Uli Hoeness had preciously attacked Gomez in a recent interview, claiming he was not a very good player as he failed to help the club win the Champions League. But sporting director Matthias Sammer was left unimpressed by the comments, saying: "We are not going to accept that Gomez is criticised in public. If we want to take the step from good to very good we have to do that in every part of the club."
