VITESSE ARNHEM defender Ruud Knol has had a setback in his bid to recover from a knee injury and now faces being sidelined until February.

The stopper, 21, had an operation two months ago but his progress has not been as smooth as expected and Krol now faces a winter on the treatment table.

It is a major blow for Vitesse who have struggled in De Eredivisie and face Uefa Cup elimination at the hands of Liverpool.

Knol will undertake an intense physiotherapy routine as he looks to ameliorate the troublesome knee.
