Tottenham fans found a bleak hope of optimism when a post surfaced the internet showing their defender Micky van de Ven at training.
The image captured the Dutch centre-back without crutches or any strappings. He was seen shaking hands with his captain, Heung-Min Son at the weight training facility.
This image created a buzz among the Tottenham fan base, with their fans anxiously praying for his return to the field.
VDV had to come off the pitch after he was seen in clutching his hamstring in pain. Much to Postecoglou’s despair, the defender had to be substituted off the field in the first half of Tottenham’s 4-1 loss to Chelsea.
Needless to say, Spurs fans began to pray for the best possible outcome for their centre-back and therefore the photo was a major relief to the fan base.
The fans began to speculate that van de Ven’s injury might not have been as serious as it looked. They even started to wonder if he would be ready for their match against Wolves on Saturday.
However, Journalist Paul O’Keefe curbed this optimism as tweeted that players have to report to training even if they are injured. He added that there is still no conclusive answer to the extent of the injury and VVD’s return to the pitch can’t be speculated.
Further scans on Van De Ven’s hamstring are expected to be conducted within Wednesday or Thursday. Tottenham hasn’t released any official statements about van de Ven’s health status yet. However the Tottenham fans and Ange Postecoglou will be impatiently waiting for his as soon as possible.
