Holland striker Klaas-Jan Huntelaar revealed on Friday he has decided to go under the knife to repair his damaged knee ligaments.
The Schalke 04 forward took to Twitter to share the news, a day after his club's sporting director Horst Held had said he probably wouldn't play again in 2013.
"It was tough but I've decided to undergo an operation," Huntelaar said on Twitter.
"The recovery period will be three or four months. It's tough but it's a necessary period."
