Burnley Seek Uefa Keeper Dispensation After Pope And Heaton Injuries
(3.8k )
Premier League side Burnley are to ask Uefa for a special dispensation to allow them to register another goalkeeper after losing their two England international keepers to injury.

Nick Pope, who was part of England's squad at the World Cup in Russia, suffered a dislocated shoulder in last week's first leg of the Europa League second qualifying round tie against Aberdeen which ended 1-1.

Burnley manager Sean Dyche said that Pope had undergone a operation on his shoulder but that there was no timescale for his return.

"He's had the op. So far it's pleasing news in the sense the specialist was happy," said Dyche.
Tom Heaton, who missed most of last season with his own shoulder injury, was expected to start against Aberdeen but has been sidelined with a calf injury.

Danish keeper Anders Lindegaard came on as a substitute in the first leg in Scotland and is expected to start on Thursday.

Burnley's fourth keeper is former Derby County custodian Adam Legzdins, who has not been registered for Uefa competition.

Teams had to submit a list of players to Uefa for European competition before the tie began.


Burnley goalkeeper Nick Pope, a member of England's World Cup squad, faces a lengthy spell on the sidelines after an operation on a dislocated shoulder, manager Sean Dyche said Wednesday.

The 26-year-old, who has one international cap but was an unused squad member in Russia, dislocated his shoulder in the Europa League second qualifying round first leg clash with Aberdeen last Thursday.

Tom Heaton, who ironically Pope replaced as first choice last season after he too dislocated a shoulder, is also struggling according to Dyche.

He has asked Uefa for dispensation to bring in another goalkeeper for Thursday's second leg at Burnley which is delicately poised at 1-1.

"He's (Pope) had the op," said Dyche.

"So far, pleasing news in the sense the specialist was happy."

Pope made the most of last season's opportunity, making more saves than all but five Premier League keepers to earn a place in Gareth Southgate's squad.
