BY foxsports • November 6, 2009

Eintracht Frankfurt striker Ioannis Amanatidis is facing a possible knee operation and will be out for an undetermined time.

The Greek international has a bruised knee that was operated on last year. He has hardly played this season due to various injuries.

Club chairman Heribert Bruchhagen said Monday that Amanatidis will be out for a "long time."

Also, defender Patrick Ochs has a cracked rib and will miss Friday's game at Bundesliga leader Bayer Leverkusen.
