Injury ends Mendieta's season


Middlesbrough's Spanish midfielder Gaizka Mendieta has been ruled out for the rest of the season with knee ligament damage.

Mendieta requires surgery on an anterior cruciate ligament injury sustained on Sunday against Portsmouth, Middlesbrough said on its official website on Tuesday.

The 30-year-old was injured after a challenge with Portsmouth's Patrik Berger in the 38th-minute of the 1-1 draw at the Riverside.
