Stoke City’s Peter Odemwingie has confirmed he

requires knee surgery and will miss most of the

season.

The Nigeria international was taken off on a

stretcher during Stoke’s shock 1-0 win at Premier

League champions Manchester City on Saturday.

Initially it was hoped Odemwingie had escaped

serious damage, but the 33-year-old took to

Twitter on Tuesday to reveal he needs to go under

the knife and will therefore be sidelined for

the majority of the 2014-15 campaign.

“It’s confirmed now surgery is required. Really

gutted I will miss many games of the season. [I]

Will work hard to be back as early as possible,” he

wrote.

“We have a strong squad that will do great in the

league and I will be back in time for the Wembley

finals.”

Odemwingie, who represented his country at this

year’s World Cup, scored six goals in 15 Premier

League appearances for Stoke last season

following his move from Cardiff City.
