MIDDLESBROUGH boss Ai­tor Karanka has re­vealed Mustapha Carayol is fac­ing a race against time to be fit for the start of next sea­son.

Carayol un­der­went surgery in April af­ter dam­ag­ing knee lig­a­ments against Bournemouth and looks set to miss most of pre-sea­son.

“Un­for­tu­nately, we don't ex­pect Muzzy to be ready for when we re­turn to train­ing,” said Karanka.

“He will miss a chunk of that train­ing.

“It has been tough for Muzzy to have such a se­ri­ous in­jury, but I am in con­tact with him ev­ery week and he is stronger each time I speak to him.”
