Bayern Munich's Javi Martinez confirms that he is likely to require surgery this week after injuring his knee in the DFL-Supercup

Bayern Munich's Javi Martinez has revealed that he is almost certain he will be facing a long spell on the sidelines after injuring his knee on Wednesday night.

Martinez was stretchered off in the first half of the 2-0 defeat to Borussia Dortmund in the DFL-Supercup, and he expects that surgery will be needed to repair the problem, with Bayern medics suggesting that he has damaged his anterior cruciate ligament.

"I'm on the bus and just spoke with the doctor. He told me 99% I got my ACL broken," the Spaniard told members of the media. "I rely on the 1% left but I think I'm in a bad way.

"I'm on the bus with a cold machine. It's so hard. If it's an ACL injury, I'll have surgery tomorrow and I'll start my recovery to come back as soon as possible and be a better player. I'll be back."

If the injury is as serious as first feared, Martinez could miss the majority of Bayern's season.
