Tottenham offer Micky van de Ven update as defender begins recovery from hamstring injury
The defender will be out of commission for the remainder of the season for Ange Postecoglou.
As the Spurs defender begins his road to recovery from a hamstring injury, Micky van de Ven has begun his rehabilitation.
Fears that the injury was serious were raised when the center-back hobbled off during Tottenham’s chaotic loss to Chelsea in the first half while chasing a ball over the top.
The news that Van de Ven wouldn’t need surgery gave Spurs hope, since he could start his rehabilitation at Hotspur Way with the club’s medical staff.
In a video that was uploaded to the team’s social media accounts, Van van Ven is seen working out at the gym with a few of his teammates. It appears that they are making progress with their recovery.
Although there has been no indication of when the defender will resume training or playing for the first team, Ange Postecoglou stated last week that the defender is not anticipated to return until the following year.
The Spurs manager stated, “We knew Micky had a fairly significant hamstring injury.”
“We anticipate the new year to begin a few months from now.
After joining from Wolfsburg for £43 million in the summer, Van van Ven has been a huge success in north London. He played every minute of the Premier League season until he was substituted off against Chelsea.
Spurs have already suffered from his absence and Cristian Romero’s suspension; before the international break, Ben Davies and Eric Dier started at center back against Wolves.Tottenham’s undefeated start to the Premier League season came to an abrupt end when they lost that game in dramatic fashion, capping a run of consecutive defeats.
James Maddison, who hurt his ankle against Chelsea and is probably not going to play again until 2024, is also out for Spurs.
“Madders is a lot worse than we first thought, it was bad the next day,” Postecoglou stated. “Again into the New Year with him.”
