Borussia Monchengladbach midfielder Michael Bradley is to have surgery after breaking his nose in training this afternoon.

Gladbach are hoping the United States international can avoid missing any games by wearing a protective mask, but must wait for the results of the operation before making any decisions.

Bradley has a little extra time to recover as he is already suspended for Sunday's clash with Hamburg in the Bundesliga. The 23-year-old has missed only four games all season for Gladbach, whom he joined from Heerenveen in September 2008.
