Surgery for Ruiz

Fulham forward Bryan Ruiz had undergone minor surgery on the broken metatarsal that has ruled him out for the season, with the club confirming he will be sidelined for 10 weeks.

The Costa Rica international picked up the injury in Saturday's 3-0 Barclays Premier League win at Bolton and had to be carried off after 73 minutes.

A club statement read: "Following an injury sustained against Bolton Wanderers on Saturday 7th April, the club can report that Bryan Ruiz sustained a fracture in the fifth metatarsal in his foot.

"A small operational procedure has taken place to repair the damage, and the sports science team advise a 10-week recovery period, prior to any form of training."

Speaking after last night's 1-1 draw with west London rivals Chelsea, Fulham manager Martin Jol said: "He broke his foot so he will be out until June or July. It is a metatarsal issue."
