RKC WAALWIJK keeper Rob van Dijk has been ruled out for the remainder of the season after tearing knee ligaments, news that will hand an unexpected opportunity to Khalid Sinouh.

Over the weekend, Sinouh said that he was happy to extend his stay at RKC, claiming he could take the number one jersey from van Dijk at some point over the next two seasons.

However, van Dijk suffered serious damage to his knee during Sunday`s 3-2 win over AZ Alkmaar and will not play again this season.

RKC boss Martin Jol will now thrust Sinouh into action and it will give him a real opportunity to cement a regular place in the team.
