Wes Brown hasn’t enjoyed the best of times since arriving to Sunderland in July of 2011 as the defender has had to deal with a number of injuries that has not allowed him to perform at his best. The English player even had to miss out from playing an entire season due to fitness problems.
In this season, Brown has made a total of 24 appearances which is a good amount of matches in a single season but now that the season is reaching it’s end, Brown does not look like he will be able to perform in these last matches of the campaign.
Sunderland is pitted in the bottom spots of the Premier League and Dick Advocaat will need all the help he can get in order to avoid the bottom relegation zone but Wes Brown is struggling with an ankle injury and it remains uncertain if he can play in any of the remaining matches of the season.
Even with all the injuries that Wes Brown has sustained, the played has been a key member for Sunderland and there were talks of the player wanting to have his contract extended which currently runs out in the summer.
These recurring injuries is a huge setback for Wes Brown and Sunderland as Dick Advocaat is not interested in extending the contract of a player who continuously gets affected by long term injuries and at the age of 35, Brown is not able to recover so easily from his physical problems as it takes more time for him to get back into the pitch.
Wes Brown sustained his ankle injury back in March 21 when Sunderland faced off against West Ham and the veteran defender had to be removed from the pitch at the 11th minute and ever since then, he has not been able to return to the playing grounds.
