The 32-year-old Argentine midfielder has played just one league game this season due to a toe injury, and recent attempts at a return to training have ended without success.

"I don't think Julio is going to make the rest of the season," said Mowbray.

"I had a chat with him today and he's had a setback with his toe. He had trained for the last three or four days and looked really good in training.

"Julio is a quality footballer with the ball at is feet and he had pepped training up. But after this setback I'm not anticipating seeing him again this season.

"It's a shame for him and for the club. We wish him well and if we don't see him again it will be a disappointing end because he's out of contact in the summer."

Arca is currently Boro's longest serving member of the first-team having joined from local rivals Sunderland in 2006. He has made nearly 200 appearances for Boro in that period, scoring nine times.

ah, Fergie is just having another pop at Rooney. He just wants to put him down whenever he gets a chance. Rooney is by far the best English player. Carrick is not far behind, mind. However, by elevating Carrick like that, Sir is having a dig at Wayne. Fergie is well-known for mind games like that. Good to see he's still feisty.
