Spurs winger, Steven Bergwijn, has taken time out to update people on his current fitness levels following a serious-looking injury sustained against Burnley.
The Dutch flyer had made a fine start to his Spurs career before suffering a nasty looking ankle injury against the Clarets.
However, in a twist of fate, the current break in football could help Spurs along the way. Indeed, Bergwijn had told the club’s official website that things are looking up for him.
“I’m making progress,” he said.
“As you can see, I can walk now and today (Thursday) I’ll get my new boot, so that’s good news. The moment I got the kick I thought it was serious. I was in so much pain and that night, I couldn’t sleep.
“It was bad, but we’re making progress and I’ll come back stronger.”
There is currently no timeframe given for Bergwijn’s return from injury. However, Spurs reported it as a ‘significant ankle sprain’. These sorts of injuries can vary between just a few weeks to months of rehab.
Bergwijn was a January signing for the Londoners and scored on his debut against Manchester City. He added a second goal in the home loss against Wolves before leaving the field injured against Burnley.
Positive news in the mix of a nightmare – TBR View
While it’s just a small amount of solace to take it is at least some good news for Spurs fans.
Their season has been ravaged by injuries this year. Out of all the clubs chasing Europe, the Covid-19 pandemic might actually do Spurs some good – strictly in football terms of course!
Bergwijn has looked a fine player so far. He’ll be itching to get back and help his team out when he can.
It’s good news, then, to see the Dutchman on the mend already after what looked a shocking injury at the time.
