Tottenham Hit with Major Injury Setback as Ange Postecoglou Provides Micky van de Ven Update

Micky van de Ven

Ange Postecoglou has expressed his opinions on Micky van de Ven’s remarks about his anticipated Tottenham comeback from injury.

The Dutch player suffered a hamstring injury during a match against Chelsea, which has kept him out of action for almost two months. In the same game, James Maddison, another summer acquisition, also sustained an ankle injury.

They should be back in action in the new year. In order to spare the injured pair needless stress, Postecoglou declined to provide a specific timetable for their possible return when asked about the updates prior to the Everton match.

Micky van de Ven disclosed his expected return date

The 22-year-old Tottenham player Micky van de Ven disclosed his expected return date during a nine-dart challenge at the PDC World Darts Championships on December 22, defying earlier reports that he was not close to rejoining the first team.

Journalist Rob Maul of The Sun claims that van de Ven stated his intention to return in just two weeks. In response to these remarks made in public, Ange Postecoglou said he doesn’t take into account what players think about their recuperation process. Postecoglou noted that van de Ven might be spotted in January, perhaps against Manchester United on January 14, but he is not anticipated for the Burnley game, even though he is getting closer.

According to Ange Postecoglou, he doesn’t think about a player’s return date until he observes them working out with the squad. The player is not anticipated to join the group this week, and his development will be evaluated at the conclusion of the week.

Their availability will be set once they begin training with the team. Given that the player is probably nearing the end of his recuperation, he expects to have him available sometime in mid-January. Nevertheless, the player’s condition will determine how they are used following such a lengthy absence.

After being replaced at halftime in Boxing Day’s 2-1 victory over Everton, Cristian Romero has announced that he won’t be available for at least the next few weeks. “With Romero, it’s not so great,” Postecoglou said on Wednesday. “He recently underwent a scan. He has strained his hamstrings. Therefore, we’re looking at four to five weeks for him.”

Sadly, Ange Postecoglou will be missing a crucial member of his Tottenham team when they travel to the south coast to play Brighton.

The Spurs manager has been without Micky van de Ven and James Maddison for a few months now, and Rodrigo Bentancur has now added to the list of injuries.

Only a few weeks after making multiple substitute appearances, Bentancur sustained an ACL injury that limited his playing time to just 32 minutes in a deeper role during the team’s defeat at the hands of Aston Villa. Matty Cash delivered a hard tackle that tore his ankle ligaments.

Spurs bounced back from the setback, winning three of their next five games, including a memorable draw with Manchester City.

Cristian Romero’s return was correlated with the team’s improved performance. Unfortunately, Romero pulled his hamstring during the weekend’s match against Everton, so Ange Postecoglou won’t have this option going forward. Romero recently had a scan, and Postecoglou reports that the recuperation period is anticipated to last four to five weeks.

Given that Romero is out, it seems likely that Emerson Royal, who filled in at left-back during Destiny Udogie’s suspension, will keep his place. The Italy international’s absence against Everton was due to a cumulative number of yellow cards. It is anticipated that he will return right away, giving Ange Postecoglou vital ball-playing abilities for Thursday’s match against Brighton.

Eventually, With his impactful runs from deep positions, Udogie’s absence from the field is felt most during the build-up. Romero and van de Ven are both out, so the defensive starting lineup will change once more. It appears quite unlikely that Eric Dier, the England international, will start against Brighton even though he entered the game at halftime against Everton.
