BERLIN, AFP - Bayern Munich winger Franck Ribery will miss next week's Champions League clash at Arsenal after undergoing surgery on bruised buttocks.

The France international was confirmed an absentee for the last 16 first leg game at the Emirates Stadium in a statement on the German champion's website yesterday.

"Ribery will miss upcoming matches, notably the last 16 Champions League game against Arsenal in London," it read.

Ribery, 30, who had the operation last Thursday, is "on the mend" the statement added, and will resume training next week.

Yesterday's news came after Bayern coach Pep Guardiola had expressed hope that Ribery would make the February 19 Arsenal fixture.

"Hopefully, he can play in London," the Spaniard said.
