Ballack Out For Three Weeks

Michael Ballack, midfielder of Chelsea FC, is out for three weeks after having surgery on both feet to remove thickened nerve tissue. The German suffered pain after Germany's 1-0 win against Wales in a World Cup qualifier on Wednesday. The German Football Federation said in a statement: "A scan Thursday confirmed the presence of neuroma. After consultations with his club doctor, manager and coach, it was decided to have immediate surgery."

The big question is how will this affect Chelsea and Germany? Let's hope that their team has a deep support as the midfielder will be out for a while.
