Marney Prepares For Unfinished Business

13 July 2016

Dean Marney feels he has ‘unfinished business’ in the Premier League after injury ended his season prematurely last time around.

The Clarets midfielder suffered a cruciate ligament injury in the 2-2 home draw with West Bromwich Albion in 2015.

But with pre-season ramping up in Evian, something which Marney missed last time around, he is now looking forward to making an impact.

“When you miss pre-season it’s hard to get that real fitness back so I’m looking forward to hopefully having an injury-free summer and the new season.

“The injury was bad timing for everyone last time in the Premier League and I didn’t think it was going to be anything like it was.

“To miss ten months and then have a series of little niggles after it was nice to get a run of games so hopefully I’ve got them out the way and I can push on.”

The title-winning season ended in sensational style with 23 games unbeaten and Marney feels that momentum could be important, with the last taste of defeat on Boxing Day a distant memory.

He added: “It’s important we keep that going and I’m sure the gaffer is looking to add one or two to what we’ve got.

“It’ll be a tough season but it’s something as players that we want to embrace.

“I’ve never really been worried about other players coming in as I see it as another challenge to make sure I’m in the team.

“The bigger picture you want the best for the squad and the club because I want us to be an established Premier League side not a yo-yo club so it’s a big season for everyone.”
