The 24-year-old, who joined from Kashima Antlers in 2010, missed the team’s 4-0 defeat to Bayern Munich, and subsequent scans have revealed a torn muscle.

The injury means that he will not be available for the first leg of Schalke’s Champions League last-16 match-up against Galatasaray in Istanbul.
