NFL Star Tom Brady, who on Sunday won his seventh title of Super Bowl, will undergo minor surgery to solve some discomfort in his left knee, US media reported on Thursday.
At 43, Brady has starred in an extraordinary first season with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, which he crowned with a victory in the Super Bowl against the Kansas City Chiefs (31-9), in which he was voted the Most Valuable Player (MVP).
At the end of the season, the quarterback will undergo surgery for an operation that his coach, Bruce Arians, described as a “cleaning” procedure, common in elite athletes. Brady played the Super Bowl with a left knee guard and also wore a splint in the same area Wednesday during the Buccaneers’ title celebration in a boat parade. According to unidentified sources told the NFL Network and ESPN, Brady has been dragging this physical discomfort for months and played with some pain for much of the season.
The quarterback was the big star of Sunday’s Super Bowl in Tampa, Florida, completing 21 of his 29 passes, including three touchdowns, without an interception.
