Huntelaar out with eye injury

Updated: February 8, 2013

Schalke forward Klaas-Jan Huntelaar
has been ruled out because of an eye problem and the club is unsure when he
will return.

Huntelaar ruptured a blood vessel in his left eye and is being treated by an
eye specialist, with the injury having forced him to miss the Netherlands’ 1-1
draw with Italy in a friendly on Wednesday.

The 29-year-old has struggled to find the net recently with just one goal in
his last seven appearances for Schalke, but his absence will be big as the
club gets set to visit Bundesliga leaders Bayern Munich on Saturday.
