FC Barcelona striker Samuel Eto'o to undergo surgery on injured thigh

FC Barcelona striker Samuel Eto'o to undergo surgery on injured thigh

FC Barcelona striker Samuel Eto'o was to undergo surgery on his right thigh on Saturday.
Barcelona said the doctors who performed the operation would give a news conference later Saturday.
Eto'o is expected to be ruled out for at least two months after sustaining a partial tear in the thigh tendon in the second half of Wednesday's friendly with Inter Milan. Barcelona won 5-0.
Eto'o spent five months on the sidelines last season with a serious right knee injury.
The Cameroon striker's absence will at least solve coach Frank Rijkaard's selection headache for a while.
Rijkaard has the task this season of deciding between a quartet of top forwards _ Eto'o, Ronaldinho, Lionel Messi and recent signing Thierry Henry.
In Barcelona's opening game of the season against Racing Santander last Sunday, Rijkaard left Henry on the bench until the second half when he replaced Messi. The game ended scoreless.
Barcelona hosts Athletic Bilbao on Sunday.
