Report explains the worst-case scenario for Micky van de Ven’s injury at Spurs

Football.London have revealed that Micky van de Ven could be sidelined for a maximum of 12 weeks after suffering a hamstring injury against Chelsea.

Van de Ven has been outstanding for Tottenham since arriving from Wolfsburg this summer and it would not be an exaggeration to say that the 22-year-old’s addition has transformed the Spurs backline.

The Tottenham fans’ hearts sank when the centre-back pulled up with a hamstring injury against Chelsea on Monday and it was immediately clear that he faces an extended spell on the sidelines, with the defender struggling to even walk.

The Telegraph revealed on Thursday that the belief at Spurs is that the Dutchman would not need surgery and that he is expected to be out until the end of the year.

Worst case scenario for Micky Van de Ven’s injury

While it is not clear if Van de Ven has suffered a Grade One (a mild muscle pull), Grade Two (a partial muscle tear) or Grade Three (a complete muscle tear), Football.London claim that the defender will recover within three months.

The outlet explains that the worst-case scenario for a hamstring problem that does not require surgery, even if it is a grade three, is around 12 weeks.

Spurs Web Opinion

If 12 weeks is the worst-case scenario, Van de Ven should be back in action before the end of January. I have to admit that I feared the worst when the Dutchman pulled up the way he did and I feared that he could be out for around four to six months. So, this is good news for Spurs.
