Brady to miss rest of the season
Although nothing has, as yet, been confirmed by the club, the Irish Daily Mail have reported that Robbie Brady has sustained a tendon tear to his left knee in Saturday’s game at Leicester.
Sean Dyche said immediately after the game that he thought it was likely to be serious and that looks now to be the case for the Republic of Ireland international who was released from hospital yesterday (Monday).
The Mail claims that scans have confirmed that the damage is a long term issue rather than short term and suggested that he might not even be fit enough for a likely summer tour for his national team to the United States.
This news is a massive blow to Brady and the Clarets. Signed from Norwich on the last day of the last January transfer window, it took him a while to settle, but with a Dyche pre-season under his belt he’s looked a different player and has recently been in outstanding form, no more so than at Bournemouth last Wednesday when he got an assist and scored his first goal of the season in an outstanding man of the match display.
If the report is accurate, he’ll certainly be badly missed, no doubt about that, and we can only wish him well in his recovery and look forward to him again pulling on a Burnley shirt in the Premier League.
The injury has now been confirmed by Burnley Football Club. Sean Dyche has said this morning: “Robbie will have surgery to repair a patellar tendon tear and will be out for a substantial recovery period. He will be given all the time and care he needs on his recovery and supported throughout from all of us at Burnley Football Club.”Share this page :
