Bayern Munich: 'Bastian Schweinsteiger surgery a success'

Bastian Schweinsteiger has undergone a successful operation on his right ankle, according to Bayern Munich president Uli Hoeness.

Bayern Munich president Uli Hoeness has revealed that the ankle operation on Bastian Schweinsteiger has been a success.

The Germany international midfielder underwent the surgery this week to repair a persistent problem in his right ankle.

"The surgery went well," Hoeness said at Bayern's Annual General Meeting on Wednesday.

"We're optimistic that he won't be out for as long as first feared. At the moment it's looking better than we thought."

Bayern have not announced how long the 29-year-old will be out for, although reports in the German media claim that he could be sidelined for up to three months.
