Dr Ramón Cugat revealed the 24-year-old would miss the next six months, meaning Ruiz will not be back until pre-season training for the 2006/07 campaign. Ruiz, who made his last appearance in the UEFA Cup group stage at Bolton Wanderers FC on 14 December, had the operation in Barcelona. Sevilla are though to the Round of 32, where they will meet FC Lokomotiv Moskva next month.
