Berlin:

Manchester City's Germany defender Jerome Boateng is expected to be out for at least six weeks after undergoing a knee operation.

The 22-year-old went under the knife in Augsburg, Germany, after damaging his right knee in the warm-up for Germany's 4-0 win over Kazakhstan in a Euro 2012 qualifier on March 26.

The 13-times capped defender, reportedly being courted by German champions Bayern Munich, is due to begin rehabilitation training soon.

City manager Roberto Mancini has said Boateng is unlikely to play again this season, but could return for the last two games.
