Ivory Coast defender Sol Bamba has been ruled out for the rest of the season after damaging knee ligaments while in action for his English Premier League side Cardiff City.

In a statement by the club, Cardiff manager Neil Warnock said “Unfortunately our biggest fears have been confirmed regarding the injury Sol suffered at Wolves on Saturday” 

“Scans have shown that Sol has ruptured his ACL; he will have an operation on Wednesday and therefore miss the rest of the season. It is a major blow to the squad but I know all of our supporters will join me in wishing him the very best during his recovery.”
