MOSCOW, November 27 (R-Sport) – Spartak Moscow striker Welliton has successfully undergone surgery on his collarbone, the team said Tuesday.

The 26-year-old suffered a shoulder injury in a game against CSKA Moscow in March and later had a metal plate inserted in his clavicle. He missed all the remaining fixtures of the season, returning to the squad in July.

In Tuesday’s operation in a German clinic, the plate was removed and the Brazilian is set to return to Moscow on Wednesday.

Welliton joined Spartak in 2007 from Brazilian team Goias and played 104 games in all competitions, scoring 57 times.

Unai Emery was fired as coach of Spartak on Sunday after Spartak were thrashed 5-1 by rivals Dynamo Moscow and eliminated from the Champions League. General director Valery Karpin stepped in as caretaker coach for the team's two remaining games of the year on Monday.

Spartak are seventh in the Russian Premier League table with 29 points from 17 games, 11 points behind leaders CSKA Moscow.

Spartak host third-placed Zenit St. Petersburg on Friday.
