Tear in Blind’s ankle ligament

Tear in Blind’s ankle ligament

Daley Blind was left with a small tear in his ankle ligament after the match against Heracles Almelo (3-0). The tear was visible on an MRI scan made on Monday afternoon. The defender’s recovery is expected to take four to six weeks.

Blind sustained the injury just before half time, after a play by Heracles player Willie Overtoom, who’s foot hit Blind straight on the ankle joint. Blind made way for the debutant, Nicolai Boilesen on Sunday.
