The defending champions of the Dutch Eredivisie is just 8 games away from making a repeat of their title. Ajax is sitting on a six point lead from Vitesse and if we look at it in a mathematical point of view, it is still possible for the current 2nd placer to take away the lead from the defending champions. Ajax does have a list of injuries that they need to attend to right now to be able to seal the Eredivisie championship. Let’s take a look at how the list of injuries for Ajax is progressing.
Mike van der Hoorn (Knee Injury – Back in training)
Ajax defender Mike van der Hoorn injured his knee in their last friendly against Zwaluwen ’30. The injury happened when the match was about to end. An early assumption was that the injury seemed season ending as van der Hoorn wasn’t able to return to the dressing room at his own will. A sigh of relief was given as medical reports have revealed no damage to the joint and he is cleared to train again.
Viktor Fischer (Hamstring/Strain – Out for Season)
The young winger was seen limping out in their win over AZ Alkmar in February. It has been confirmed that Fischer had sustained a hamstring injury. Manager Frank de Boer has stated that the Danish striker will no longer play until the end of the season. Boer has said before their match against Cambuur “It is difficult for him to even play a game.” With Viktor out, it has given the chance for the returning Ricardo Kishna to enjoy some playing time.
Ricadro Kishna (Groin Injury – Back in training
Reports have stated that the recovery of Ricardo Kishna is going on smoothly and is about to return to action for the defending champions. Frank de Boer has even stated that the recovery has been quicker that they have expected. If Kishna can return in time, he will have an opportunity to get the spot that Viktor Fischer left until the end of the season.
Nicolai Boilesen (Hamstring/Strain – Back in Training)
Manager Frank de Boer is feeling confident that Nicolai Boilesen is fit enough to feature for their next fixture against NAC Breda. Boilsen has been out since mid-February due to a hamstring injury but has now returned to training with the club. Frank de Boer has stated “Last Monday Nicolai joined the group, so that again, I expect it to,” he also added about Kishna “Even Kishna I expect in Breda. Against Cambuur he fell out with groin injury was, but it’s now been better.”
