Bayern Munich star Arjen Robben will be unable to train for 10 days after undergoing another operation on his pubic bone.
The Holland international went under the knife after being forced to pull out of his country's Euro 2012 qualifiers with Moldova and Sweden.
Bayern have confirmed that the 27-year-old former Real Madrid and Chelsea man will now require at least a week-and-a-half on the sidelines before resuming first-team training.
"Over the past few days some inflammation has developed around the pubic bone," read a Bayern statement.
"That tissue was successfully removed this (Friday) morning.
"The medical department expects Robben to be able to resume training in 10 days' time."
