ROBBIE BRADY HAS started out on his road to recovery after undergoing surgery yesterday in the wake of the serious knee injury he suffered while in action for Burnley last Saturday.

The Ireland international damaged his right knee during the Premier League clash with Leicester City and had an operation yesterday to repair his patella tendon.

Burnley boss Sean Dyche did not give an exact time frame for Brady’s recovery today but did reveal the operation went well and that Brady is aware of what the rehabilitation period entails.

“The surgeon, who has done most of our players, was very happy with the work that was done,” Dyche told the Burnley official website.

“I have spoken to him briefly and he’s fine. He understands it and he’s been talked through the plan of attack from now, leading to when he’s fit.

“Any timescale at the moment would be too general. He will be moving very quickly.

“We look forward to seeing him, first of all just moving around the training ground and getting on with it, and then obviously when he’s fit.

“Life goes quickly and it will soon come back round for him to join in again.”

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.

The 25-year-old has won 38 caps for Ireland.
