For the post’s caption, Bronze wrote: “Successful surgery!! In very good spirits after my knee op yesterday. It’s never easy being sidelined, but I’m as focused as ever to work hard and return to full fitness, hopefully as soon as possible.
“Thank you to everyone for all of your kind messages already! I couldn’t ask for better support, so thank you. The hard work has already started. Already can’t wait to be back on the pitch with this team. See you all very soon.”
