Sunderland boss Bruce: Meyler tough enough to bounce back

Sunderland boss Steve Bruce is confident David Meyler will bounce back from his knee operation.

The young Irishman is now recovering from major knee surgery.

Bruce said: "David didn't make an impact until the New Year in the first team but people forget he picked up a serious ankle injury in Portugal and then another one just as he was on the verge of returning.

"David is injured right now but he's a tough lad and a determined character and I'm sure he'll be back."
