Borussia Moenchengladbach striker Max Kruse will miss the start of the new Bundesliga season after undergoing surgery for a ureteral stone, the club announced on Tuesday.

The 25-year-old German international, who scored 12 league goals for Gladbach last season, will sit out his side`s first three matches of the new campaign.

He will miss Gladbach`s trip to fourth-tier Homburg in the first round of the German Cup on Saturday as well as the first leg of the Europa League play-off tie against Sarajevo on August 21 and the Bundesliga curtain-raiser at home to Stuttgart three days later.
