Yokohama F. Marinos midfielder Shunsuke Nakamura will use the nearly two-month intermission in the J. League to undergo an operation for chronic gallbladder disease, a team source said Sunday.

The 35-year-old former Japan midfielder will likely be hospitalized for two to three days, the source said. Nakamura will aim to return once the J. League resumes after the World Cup.
