Burnley Release Statement Regarding Severity Of Robbie Brady Injury

Burnley's Robbie Brady suffered a knee injury at Leicester and faces

The Republic of Ireland global suffered a torn patella tendon in a collision with Leicester's Harry Maguire and, though the Clarets have not confirmed his campaign is over, a six-month layoff is expected.

In the moments that followed the injury, it was evident that there was immediate concern for the Irish global and, after Brady was stretchered off the pitch, Burnley manager Sean Dyche stated that he instantly had the feeling that the injury was "more serious than not serious".

Brady joined Burnley from Norwich last January and has scored four goals for the Turf Moor club, including a strike in their recent 2-1 win away to Bournemouth.

Speaking on the Burnley official website, Dyche said: "The surgeon, who has done most of our players, was very happy with the work that was done". "I spoke to him briefly and he's fine, he understands it". It would be too general.

"He will be moving very quickly. We look forward to seeing him, first of all when he's back moving at the training ground, and obviously then when he is fit".

Sean Dyche has also been speaking about Brady's injury on Wednesday. "It doesn't change anything in the sense that, it's an ongoing thing for us - recruitment", said Dyche.

"I've mentioned many times my belief in the whole group and here's another chance for it to shine". Build the inner demand between ourselves?

"They are a good club, they are a different club to when I left, but they are a good club". It's an on-going thing for us, recruitment.
