Defour declares knee op a success
Burnley have played the last two games, at Newcastle and against Manchester City, without Steven Defour after a scan confirmed he would need cartilage surgery.
The midfielder, who had been an ever present in the Premier League this season and was one of the most influential players in the team, will almost certainly be ruled out for the remainder of the season and could also miss the World Cup with Belgium.
“All went fine,” he said on social media. Thanks for all your messages. Motivates me to come back as soon as possible.”
