Blind makes up for circumstances, but does not train for the time being

Daley Blind is doing well under the circumstances. The day after the defender of Ajax went to ground with Hertha BSC without an opponent near him, the club reports that Blind is not training (for the time being) and that he will be investigated further.

Before it is clear why the defibrillator went off Blind, the player will not participate in the training of the Amsterdammers. However, Blind did visit training complex De Toekomst on Wednesday morning.

Blind plays with an ICD, a subcutaneous device that restores his heart rhythm in case of disorders. “His ICD went off, the cardiologist is going to examine it”, said trainer Erik ten Hag Tuesday evening after winning the 1-0 practice duel.


After an incident during the Champions League game against Valencia at the end of last year, when Blind also went to ground for a while, the Dutch national team suffered an inflammation of a heart muscle.

In February, Blind, equipped with a defibrillator, received a green light for a comeback on the fields. Before the coronastop he then played in four league duels.
