MADRID: Real Madrid’s Dutch striker Ruud van Nistelrooy underwent an operation on his right knee in the United States yesterday and will miss the rest of the season, according to the Spanish club.
“The player had an operation and will be out for the remainder of the season,” the club said in a statement.
The former Manchester United marksman, 32, is expected to be out of action for “between six and nine months”, the club added.
The Dutch striker made the trip across the Atlantic earlier this week to see Richard Steadman, the doctor who already operated on the striker’s right knee in 2000. — AFP
