The injuries sustained by Tottenham Hotspur defender Micky van de Ven have been revealed by journalist Alasdair Gold, based on information from “medical experts.”
In his most recent video on YouTube, Gold gave an update on Micky Van de Ven’s injury and said the defender is still anticipated to make a comeback in the new year.
After suffering a hamstring injury in the match against Chelsea, the 22-year-old was initially predicted to miss the rest of the season.
Many Tottenham supporters expressed optimism that Van van Ven would make an early comeback in response to a social media post made on his Instagram account over the weekend.However, Gold asserted on Friday that the defender’s expected recovery time has not changed.
The journalist for Football.London has now revealed what doctors have informed him regarding the Dutchman’s recuperation.
What medical experts have said about Van de Ven’s injury
Van de Ven’s recuperation schedule, according to Gold, is still the same at this point.
The journalist adds that medical professionals have informed him that Van de Ven may require up to 12 weeks to heal even though he hasn’t had surgery.
As of right now, Gold stated, “it still seems to be on the original recovery timeline.” Another common misconception is that “he won’t be out for very long because he hasn’t had surgery.” It just doesn’t operate that way.
“On this, I have properly consulted medical experts; I have not merely relied on my own knowledge, which I have also applied to my Googling on the NHS website. According to medical professionals, it could take up to 12 weeks for a hamstring injury to heal, even if surgery is not necessary. It might still require that length of time.
“I believe that even with a grade 3, which is the worst, surgery is not necessary. Once again, the injury’s grade has not yet been disclosed.
For Ange Postecoglou, losing Van de Ven until the new year is a severe blow.
Since moving from Wolfsburg to the Netherlands in the summer, the Dutchman has excelled, and James Maddison is expected to miss a similar amount of time due to an ankle injury.
Nonetheless, Cristian Romero will miss two more games following his red card against Chelsea, while Postecoglou should be able to welcome Destiny Udogie back for Tottenham’s match against Aston Villa this weekend.
Spurs are probably not going to rush Van de Ven back because they don’t want to make his existing hamstring injury worse.
Given that players like Ryan Sessegnon and Dele Alli experienced similar problems, Tottenham supporters are well aware of the ease with which these injuries can recur.
