Selassie to go under the knife

The Czech Republic international hurt his left hand and has been diagnosed with a broken metacarpal.

"I have a lot of pain," he told the club's website.

Coach Thomas Schaaf added: "We are very sorry for Theo that he has suffered this injury. We hope that he is able to return quickly."
