Pienaar sidelined with ankle injury

Ajax will have to miss Steven Pienaar for some weeks. The South African has torn one of the ligaments in his right ankle in the match against Vitesse on 11 December.

Pienaar is expected to be sidelined for four to six weeks. He was to miss the match against NAC Breda on Sunday anyway, after he received his fourth yellow card against Vitesse.
