Daley Blind has fully resumed training at Ajax, the Amsterdam club reports on Tuesday. The thirty-year-old defender was given the green light by the doctors to train again.
Medical research has shown that there is no reason to keep Blind aside for longer. He started training in phases last week and is now fully training again.
Blind collapsed exactly two weeks ago during the practice match of Ajax against Hertha BSC (1-0). Ten minutes before the end, the 69-time Orange-international suddenly went to the ground in the Johan Cruijff ArenA without an opponent being nearby.
After Ajax’s medical staff got to him, Blind seemed to be gesturing to his chest. Eventually he was able to get to his feet and walk off the field to be replaced.
After the match Ajax coach Erik ten Hag took away most of the worries by saying that Blind’s internal defibrillator had gone off. Blind has been playing with a defibrillator since he went to the ground out of nowhere in the Champions League game with Valencia at the end of last year.
In the studies that followed, Blind was diagnosed with an inflamed heart muscle. As a result, he could not play football for two months.
