Blind ‘feel fine’ after collapse in Ajax friendly and ready for tests

Daley Blind will undergo tests during an Ajax friendly on Wednesday after a health scare.
Ajax defender Daley Blind is “feeling fine” and will go through more tests on Tuesday after a health scare, his club has reported.

It is said that the former Manchester United defender collapsed before being replaced during a friendly match with Hertha Berlin.

After being diagnosed with heart muscle inflammation following a Champions League game with Valencia last December, Blind was fitted with a subcutaneous implantable cardioverter defibrillator, a device which monitors and regulates his heart rhythm.

Ajax coach Erik ten Haag confirmed that there was an alert sent by Blind’s ICD as he fell to the pitch during the Hertha match.

“Daley Blind’s ICD went off,” Ten Haag said to Ziggo Sport. “He got subjected immediately and now he’s feeling OK, he’s feeling fine. Now we’re going to do research on this.”

Having already been out of the game for two months after the initial heart diagnosis in December, Blind faces another spell on the sidelines while doctors find out what caused the collapse.

On Wednesday Ajax released a statement via Twitter saying: “Daley Blind was forced to leave the pitch during Ajax-Hertha BSC.

“Due to the circumstances, the central defender is feeling good and was at Sportpark de Toekomst this morning. Until resuming school, he will go through further assessments and await the results of those exams.

Born in Amsterdam, Blind joined Ajax’s youth academy at the age of eight and worked his way up the ranks before his debut in 2008. He spent six years at the club in a variety of midfield and defensive roles before earning a move to Manchester United in 2014.

Blind came back to Ajax in 2018 and was part of their successful run to the 2019 semi-finals of the Champions League, where they fell short against Tottenham for the dramatic winning goal of Lucas Moura.

Last year’s initial heart incident came as a shock to Blind ‘s senior career featuring more than 350 matches over 12 years including 69 caps for the Netherlands. He has won six Eredivisie titles with Ajax throughout his career while he has also lifted the KNVB Cup on one occasion.

Although at United, Blind struggled to win the league but was part of four trophy triumphs including Europa League, FA Cup, Carabao Cup and Community Shield.

Ajax is currently planning for the start of the Eredivisie season 2020-21, following the abandonment of the previous campaign due to coronavirus without a winner.
