Bayern star Holger Badstuber has undergone successful surgery to repair damage to the anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee. The Germany international, who sustained the serious injury in an accidental collision during Saturday’s home meeting with Borussia Dortmund, was treated in Augsburg by renowned surgeon Dr. Ulrich Boenisch. “It all went well,” FCB chief medical officer Dr Hans-Wilhelm Müller-Wohlfahrt announced after the operation. The 23-year-old Badstuber is likely to be out of action for five months.
