Barry Murphy is recovering well from foot surgery and is looking forward to his season ahead which will included a coaching stint with UL Bohemians.
The Munster and Ireland centre, who was released by Munster at the end of the season, suffered the injury at the tail end of the season had the operation in Dublin and his surgeon optimistic of a positive outcome.”The surgeon seems to think there is a chance of a full recovery” said Murphy, “After suffering long injured periods over the last two seasons, it is much too early to announce any chance of a comeback.”
“I have six to nine months of recovery and rehab to go through. I’ll quite literally take each step at a time and take stock of what I’m capable of at the end of that process.”
“I’d like to thank everyone who has been so supportive, especially medical staff, players and coaches at Munster and not forgetting the supporters too.”
The injury that Murphy suffered was an unusual one. It is known as a “Lisfrank” injury which to be corrected involved the fusion of two small bones in his foot.
