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.
