MADRID - Real Betis winger David Odonkor needs further surgery on his right knee and will be out for at least four months, Spain's professional football league (LFP) said on their website on Wednesday.

The former German international, who last represented his country against Croatia at Euro 2008, had an operation on the same knee in 2008 and was sidelined for most of last season.
