Munitis ruled out for the season

April 15, 2010

Racing Santander captain Pedro Munitis is set to miss the rest of the season after suffering knee ligament damage during Wednesday's Primera Division win over Espanyol.

Munitis, who sustained the injury just after half-time, underwent tests on his left knee this morning and the initial estimation is that the former Real Madrid forward will be sidelined for around six weeks.

That would rule Munitis out of Racing's final six league games as the Cantabrian side attempt to avoid relegation.

The victory over Espanyol lifted Racing up to 15th spot, six points above the bottom three.
