‘Tottenham laughing or crying?” DF Van der Vaart says no surgery, return next year…Hwang Hee Chan who?
Tottenham’s reliable defender Mickey van der Vaan (22) collapsed, but fortunately, he will not undergo surgery.
It’s good news and sad news.
British media outlet ‘The Athletic’ reported on the 10th (KST), “Van der Vaart, who suffered a hamstring injury in the last game against Chelsea, is not seriously injured enough to go on the operating table.
There is no guarantee of the recovery time, but he will be out of action until at least January next year.”
He was on a roll.
Van der Vaart started in central defense against Chelsea in the 11th round of the 2023-24 English Premier League (EPL) at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in London, England, on April 7.
As usual, he partnered with Cristian Romero at center back.
However, Romero was sent off for a direct challenge.
In the 33rd minute, he was shown a red card for a rough challenge on Chelsea midfielder Enzo Fernandez.
Eric Dier came on immediately and conceded from the ensuing penalty kick (PK).
Van der Vaart was injured in the spill.
Van der Vaart went down on his right thigh in the 44th minute of the first half without making contact with anyone while trying to stop a Chelsea counterattack. 먹튀검증
As van der Vaan was signaled off in pain, Tottenham players raised their hands and called for the game to be stopped.
The Tottenham medical team came in, attached van der Vaart, and left.
The Tottenham home fans clapped and cheered for van der Vaart. Spurs took Van der Vaart off and brought on Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg.
Dier and Hojbjerg then took over the central defense.
Van der Vaart is new to Tottenham.
He joined Tottenham from Wolfsburg in Germany during the summer transfer window, and has immediately established himself in the starting lineup.
He has started all 11 Premier League games so far, scoring one goal. He’s a left-footed defender, which makes him even more valuable.
His Dutch nationality has earned him the nickname ‘the next Van Dijk’.
