Burnley Release Statement Regarding Severity Of Robbie Brady Injury

Burnley and Ireland midfielder Robbie Brady

Brady, Ireland's Player of the Year in 2016, is the sixth Burnley player to suffer a serious knee injury in four-and-a-half years.

Burnley are proving to be the Premier League's surprise package this season as Sean Dyche's side continue to ratchet up the wins despite their shoe-string budget.

Now, The Clarets have released an official statement on their star winger and unfortunately, Dyche's initial assessment was correct with Brady set to undergo surgery and will be out for a "substantial" period of time.

Burnley midfielder Robbie Brady will be sidelined for a significant period as he prepares to undergo surgery to fix a patellar tendon tear in his left knee, the Premier League club said on Wednesday.

Manchester City to bid "big" for Alexis Sanchez in January
Once again, a possible £50million-plus Sanchez transfer to the Etihad is destined to be a right royal tug-of war. CITY boss Pep Guardiola will return with a huge offer to try to sign Alexis Sanchez in January.

Burnley have been dealt their second huge injury blow of the season after Robbie Brady was ruled out for a lengthy period with a patellar knee tendon injury.

The 25-year-old Ireland global sustained a tendon tear to his left knee when falling awkwardly on Premier League duty for Burnley against Leicester last Saturday.

The suggested recovery time from a patellar tendon tear is listed as 4-6 months meaning it is now unlikely that the 25-year-old will be seen togging out at Turf Moor again this season.

The Baldoyle native should be back for the Uefa Nations League series next September.
