Hannover’s Huszti requires surgery for muscle tear

Hannover winger Szabolcs Huszti will undergo surgery after
tearing his left thigh muscle while scoring a penalty in the
Bundesliga at the weekend.

The Hungary international drilled the ball into the net in
Hannover’s 5-1 win over Hamburger SV on Saturday, but immediately
pulled up as his teammates ran to him to celebrate the goal. He
then hobbled off the field.

Hannover says Huszti will undergo surgery on Tuesday and will be
out for several weeks. Seventh-place Hannover is trying to qualify
for the Europa League again after being eliminated last week by
Anzhi Makhachkala.
