Marney starts on road back after surgery
Burnley have confirmed that Dean Marney, who suffered a cruciate ligament injury at Arsenal almost three weeks ago, has undergone successful surgery and can start the long road back to recovery.
Speaking this afternoon, Sean Dyche said: “All Beattie has spoken to the specialist who did it and he was really pleased with how it went. I spoke to Marns yesterday and he’s really pleased too.
“It’s too early to say much but it’s the first day back to recovery, that’s the way to look at it. It will be the slow part of the recovery now but everyone is happy that it went well.”
It was 8th February two years ago when he suffered the same injury in a home draw against West Brom and Dyche added: “He has been through it before and he understands it all. He’s had a very good surgeon, so I think that helps.”
He came back into the first team reckoning just before Christmas in 2015 and if all goes well we could see him back in action again before the end of 2017.
Marney, signed by Brian Laws in the summer of 2010, is Burnley’s second longest serving player and his appearance at Arsenal was his 221st for the Clarets. He’d reached 200 league appearances in the previous game, the 1-0 win against Southampton. He’s also scored ten goals in that time, the most recent coming in the home defeat against Manchester City this season.Share this page :
