BERLIN - Bayer Munich midfielder Arturo Vidal will undergo minor knee surgery after picking up an injury during training and will be out for a short period of time, coach Jupp Heynckes said on Monday.
The 30-year-old Chile international is now sidelined for Tuesday&39;s German Cup semi-final against Bayer Leverkusen and is also unlikely to make their Champions League semi-final first leg against Real Madrid next week.
Bayern is chasing a treble of titles having already secured the Bundesliga crown.
"He slipped and turned his knee," Heynckes said of Vidal&39;s injury in training on Sunday.

"I talked with the doctor. He did a scan. Arturo will need to undergo a minor arthroscopic surgery. He is already on his way to Augsburg. He is now ruled out for the short-term for sure."
