The 30-year-old is confident he will be fit for pre-season training in July, as the club prepares for Europa League football next term.

"For the last two months of the season my groin has felt quite tight, but I wanted to play through the pain and finish the season," said Britton.

"I missed parts of training in that time but it was necessary to ensure I was available for the games, although I did struggle a little bit in the last four to six weeks.

"I've had one hernia since December, and a scan around four weeks or so ago showed I had another one. I've had a hernia operation before, around 2005, so I know the procedure.

"It means I will come in during the summer to do some rehab which will make sure I'm ready for pre-season training.

"Next season will be huge for us as we will be involved in four competitions, so I want to make sure I'm fit and ready when we report back for pre-season."

t's why Mourinho is so successful. He gives players a specific, limited set of functions to perform. They are but a cog in a machine. Do no more, do no less. I assume he learnt it from LvG :)

really hope that someone in the mainstream media spots that the Bayern manager played for and managed Barcelona quite well, and thinks to mention it in the build up. That would be really interesting.
