Nuremberg's Bunjaku out for six months

Swiss international forward Albert Bunjaku is expected to be sidelined for six months after surgery on knee ligaments, his Bundesliga club Nuremberg announced on Wednesday.

The 26-year-old underwent surgery on Wednesday after suffering pain in the knee during last weekend's 1-1 draw with Hamburg in the Bundesliga.

The striker, under contract with Nuremberg since February 2009, is expected to resume training next March.
