thumbnail Hello,

The Schalke forward has revealed his sadness that he will be forced to miss his side's coming matches, including the Champions League tie with Galatasaray

Schalke striker Klaas-Jan Huntelaar has admitted his disappointment at having suffered a knee injury, but says the knock "could be worse".

The Dutchman was stretchered off during Saturday's 2-1 derby win over Borussia Dortmund, and will be forced to sit out his side's Champions League last-16 clash with Galatasaray, which would have seen him face international team-mate Wesley Sneijder.

"
I knew immediately that something was wrong,"
the 29-year old told De Telegraaf.

"I hate that I'll spend weeks in the stands but it could have been even worse. It's annoying that I have to watch instead of playing against Wesley.

"Now
I will watch it with my father and brothers at the stadium. That will be painful, I think."

Schalke and Galatasaray kick off at 20:45CET on Tuesday, having drawn the first leg 1-1 in Istanbul.
