Schalke lose Huntelaar

Schalke 04 will travel to Bavaria this weekend to face Bundesliga leaders Bayern Munich without Dutch striker Klaas-Jan Huntelaar, it was announced Thursday.

Huntelaar, 29, is still struggling with the eye problem that ruled him out of the Netherlands' 1-1 friendly draw with Italy in Amsterdam on Wednesday.

Schalke's interim coach Jens Keller revealed that Huntelaar, who has scored five goals in the Bundesliga this season, will not be able to return yet.

The former Ajax, AC Milan and Real Madrid player ruptured a blood vessel in his left eye while training with the Dutch squad on Tuesday, with Oranje coach Louis van Gaal calling up Arjen Robben as a replacement.
