The medical staff at Tottenham Hotspur is already bracing for the worse, as Micky van de Ven could require surgery to address his hamstring issue.
Micky van de Ven may miss months of time due to his injury sustained on Monday night against Chelsea.
The Daily Mail claims that the Tottenham Hotspur defender is scheduled to have a hamstring diagnostic.
The biggest blow to Spurs during Chelsea’s 4-1 victory against them may have been Van van Ven’s injury among all the commotion.
James Maddison sustained a knock and Cristian Romero and Destiny Udogie were sent off, but Van van Ven appears to be out for the longest.
Tottenham medical staff worried about Micky van de Ven
In an attempt to stop a Chelsea onslaught, Van de Ven raced back but pulled up with a hamstring injury.
Spurs now have to deal with the Dutchman’s temporary absence as he was replaced right away.
The Daily Mail reports that Van van Ven’s absence from the field will last for “months,” which is what Spurs fears.
Van van Ven’s hamstring problem may require surgery, according to reports from Tottenham’s medical team, who are “concerned.”
Van van Ven is expected to miss many games in 2024 and the remainder of 2023 if his rip is worse than a grade-two.
It appears that Tottenham is quite concerned about his possible absence, but that is probably the worst case situation.
Tottenham may need to land another left-footed defender
When he returns to fitness, Ben Davies might replace Van van Ven, although he is not suited for a center back position in a four-man defense.
Because of his left-footed balance, quickness, and skill with the ball, Van de Ven is a vital component of Ange Postecoglou’s style.
With Lloyd Kelly of Bournemouth a top target, Tottenham may need to make an other investment come January.
Being a homegrown player who checks off many of the same boxes as Van van Ven, Kelly makes sense for Tottenham.
Add in that Kelly is out of contract in the summer and he makes perfect sense for Tottenham – no matter how long Van de Ven faces on the sidelines.
