ED: nine-step protocol, Gakpo seems well in time for important diptych

PSV seems to be able to take a breath of relief after Cody Gakpo has returned from the Dutch team earlier than expected. The attacker ran into Latvia complaints, fitting a concussion Friday and is not part of the party against Gibraltar on Monday.
PSV follows the usual medical protocol for players with similar complaints, reports the Eindhovens Dagblad. This protocol includes nine steps, but Gakpo could rejoin the group training at De Herdgang for the weekend, provided that his complaints do not persist and give the PSV medical staff the green light.
Roger Schmidts team will play at home at home against PEC Zwolle โ€” whether or not Gakpo โ€” and then embarks on an important diptych. On Thursday 21 October, AS Monaco will come to the Philips Stadium, three days later a showdown with Ajax, a duel between the current numbers one and two of the Eredivisie.
