Sean Dyche was happy that his team’s winger’s surgery was a success but he refused to give an expected date of his come back – Brady was injured during his team’s latest 1-0 defeat to Leicester.
Dyche’s Burnley are about to face Watford and they want to do better than in their last match against Leicester – but Dyche was more concerned about Brady’s surgery than about this match. So he was really relieved that everything is fine and his midfielder can start working on his comeback. However, the Ireland international is expected to be out for a longer period of time.
The Burnley coach spoke about his situation as he said, according to Sky Sports: “We’re very happy with the work that has been done. I spoke to him briefly and he’s fine, he understands it. He’s been talked through the plan of attack from now and leading to when he is fit. The early parts are really important. It always amazes me how nowadays they get these lads through these operations and before you know it they are walking around the training ground.”
He also talked about the option of bringing a new player to replace Brady: “We will be looking to be active. It doesn’t change anything in the sense that, it’s an ongoing thing for us – recruitment. I’ve said many times, we aren’t a club that can cherry pick. We have to monitor the market and see what is out there, what is available, see what is happening with our own players.”
In the end, Dyche insisted that he is used to the fact that his side are always underestimated: “We are written off every year so we are used to that. When you have such a strong start to the season people are surprised with that. I think we are in a very healthy position, probably more than I thought. We are honest with how tough the Premier League is.”
