Liverpool winger Boudewijn Zendenhas been ruled out for the season after scnas on his knee confirmed he would require surgery.

Zenden will fly to the United States for surgery next week on the cruciate ligament in his right knee.

“Unfortunately, it is unlikely that “Bolo” will play again this season,” a club spokesman told Liverpool’s website.

The Dutch international was injured against Real Betis in a Champions League game at Anfield on November 23.
