He had to leave the pitch on a stretcher.

The Ireland global sustained a knee injury at the weekend during Burnley's 1-0 defeat against Leicester. Brady was stretchered from the pitch after half an hour after going down injured in the box.

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.

"Robbie will have surgery to fix a patellar tendon tear and will be out for a substantial recovery period", manager Sean Dyche said on the club's website.

Such a serious injury, which can involve the tendon detaching from the kneecap, typically sidelines a player for between four and six months, thereby making it a long shot for any game-time this season.

Dyche told Burnley's club website: "Robbie (Brady) will have surgery to fix a patellar tendon tear and will be out for a substantial recovery period".

Brady lasted less than half an hour of Saturday's Premier League clash with Leicester City at the King Power Stadium, and was stretchered off following a heavy collision.

The 25-year-old scored his first goal of the season at Bournemouth, helping Burnley to a fourth away win and their best start to a top-flight season since 1973-74.

Get well soon, Robbie.
