Bergwijn making progress on injury recovery

Tottenham forward Steven Bergwijn says he is making progress in his bid to recover from an ankle injury, and has vowed to come back stronger.

Bergwijn had impressed following his switch from PSV and provided one of the highlights of the Premier League season scoring on debut against Manchester City.

But the Netherlands international’s instant impact was curtailed by an ankle ligament injury sustained in Tottenham’s 1-1 draw at Burnley earlier this month.
“At the moment I got the kick (at Burnley), I thought it was serious. I was in so much pain and that night, I couldn’t sleep,” Bergwijn told Tottenham’s official website.


“I’m making progress. I can walk now, so that’s good news. It was bad, but we’re making progress and I’ll come back stronger.”

Bergwijn says the spread of the virus has given everyone a sense of perspective on life.

“It’s a difficult time for everyone,” he added. “I see now in Holland it’s crazy, how people have to stay at home. I don’t know… difficult times.

“We have to stay together in this difficult time, but it’s not only about us, now it’s about families and the people outside (the club).

“It’s not about football anymore. It’s about your health and that’s (most) important.”
