Lee Johnson says Bailey Wright will be given a break from football – at the same time that his team-mates return for pre-season training.
Wright has started three of Australia’s five June international matches, with a further appearance off the substitutes bench.
Most recently, the defender has been in Russia for the Confederations Cup, where Australia drew twice and lost to world champions Germany to finish third in their group.
“I’ve been having discussions about Bailey with my assistants (Dean Holden and Jamie McAllister) and our fitness coach (Rhys Carr),” City’s head coach to BCTV.
“Bailey is probably up there with one of the best characters you can get in football and he’ll want to do what is right, for him and the club.
“He needs a rest but he’ll want to come back (to training). We need to give him some time off but at the same time we want him fit as a fiddle for the first game of the season.
“We’d probably want him back with us somewhere between the second and third week of July. Sadly for him, he won’t just be able to lie on a sunbed for three weeks – he will have to keep ticking over.”
The squad is due back on Friday, but as well as Wright, the likes of Hordur Magnusson and Callum O’Dowda are also expected to be given extra time off after international commitments during the close season.
