At the High Court, the 24-year-old has accused his surgeon, Bhaskar Bhowal, of allowing him to return to training prematurely. Adding that his fracture had not been fully healed, he claims this has led to ongoing issues.
The court heard that Mr. Cisak can only save a few shots in training before having to stop due to the pain. He has been forced to drop down the leagues because of it and has only been able to return to Burnley this year as a second-choice goalkeeper.
Mr. Cisak said that he has been saving goals with only the use of his left arm and is also claiming for lost wages due to the lack of progression in his career. Mr. Bhowal has denied any liability towards inhibited career claims.
John Whitting QC, the Leicester Hospital surgeon’s barrister has highlighted that in recent match reports Mr. Cisak was described as being “agile”, “smart” and “neat”.
He added: “It is difficult to see how a goalkeeper playing at an extremely high level can get rave reviews if he could only use one arm”.
