Robbie Brady Stretchered Off After 30 Minutes Against Leicester

Ireland and Burnley winger Robbie Brady was stretchered off due to an injury he sustained just 30 minutes into his club’s Premier League clash with Leicester City on Saturday¬†evening.

Brady was forced out of his side’s clash at the King Power Stadium after colliding with Leicester’s Harry Maguire.

Immediately afterwards a stretcher was called and the Irishman – who scored midweek against Bournemouth – was forced to be withdrawn.

He left the field with his side down 1-0 to a Demarai Gray goal in the fifth minute.

Though nothing official has been confirmed about the severity of the injury, Brady left the pitch with his leg in a brace and was unable to help his side, who succumbed a defeat at the hands of the 2015/16 Premier League champions as a result of the aforementioned goal by Gray.

Ireland’s international fixture list will no doubt include some friendlies as we move into the year 2018 but with no competitive matchups on the horizon, only Burnley will feel the loss of their man Brady, who was on the way towards finding some impressive form as the Premier League season edges ever closer to its half-way point.
