Fulham midfielder Ruiz out for another 4 weeks

Fulham will be without Bryan Ruiz for at least four weeks after

the Costa Rica midfielder aggravated his already injured


Fulham manager Martin Jol says ”he was in the final stage of

his rehabilitation and he aggravated his hamstring muscle


Ruiz, who was signed from FC Twente, will be sent to Germany to

see a specialist.

Jol says ”hopefully he will be fine but, of course, it’s a big

disappointment because Bryan is a vital player for us.”

Fulham haven’t scored and have lost twice in the three games

Ruiz has missed. He had been slated to play on Monday when Fulham

hosts Newcastle.

Ruiz, however, should be ready for Costa Rica’s World Cup

qualifiers in February.
