Puyol to go under knife

Barcelona captain Carles Puyol will undergo surgery on his troublesome left knee tomorrow.

The 33-year-old defender will be unavailable for Spain's friendlies against United States and Venezuela in June having missed most of the second half of the season due to injury.

He was left out of the Spanish and European champions' starting 11 for Saturday's 3-1 Champions League final victory over Manchester United but was given a run-out in place of Daniel Alves in the 88th minute.
