Ruled out for rest of season with knee injury

Ruled out for rest of season with knee injury

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.

Brady had to be carried off on a stretcher in the first half of Burnley's defeat at Leicester City on Saturday.

The 25-year-old has cruelly seen his season cut short by the injury sustained to his left knee, and will now undergo a mammoth rehabilitation programme to get himself back fit when he is fully healed.

He spent the last few days in hospital before his X-ray and Clarets boss Sean Dyche provided more details on a recovery timescale today. Medical experts are believed to have diagnosed a tear of his patellar tendon.

It said the ex-depot petrol price of N133.38 per litre and the pump price of N143 to N145 per litre had not changed. Baru is expected to appear before the committee on Thursday.

That means Brady will probably miss the remainder of the season if the early diagnosis proves to be true.

One consolation for manager Sean Dyche is the fact the transfer window will soon be open and that will give him the opportunity to go out and bring in a replacement.

The next global break comes in March and Ireland will have to do without the Dubliner as they look to rebuild after the harrowing defeat to Denmark.

Brady only joined Burnley in January from Norwich City for £14m but has already become an integral part of Dyche's starting lineup.
