"The surgery was successfully conducted by Professor Pascal-Mousselard from the orthopaedic department of the Pitie-Salpetriere Hospital.

"The length of his convalescence will be established in light of the post-surgery evolution of the injury."

Kurzawa made 20 appearances in Ligue 1 last season but is yet to play under head coach Thomas Tuchel, who was appointed in May.
