Real Madrid defender Christoph Metzelder will have an operation this week on his troublesome heel injury, the Primera Liga club announced on Saturday.

Metzelder will go under the knife on Wednesday to repair his torn plantar fasciitis following a joint decision between the German international and the Real medical and technical staff.
