Daley Blind is back in the Ajax squad for their clash with Utrecht on Sunday after recovering from an inflamed heart muscle.

During the Champions League match with Valencia on the 10th of December, Blind went down feeling dizzy. A few days later he was diagnosed with a heart muscle infection and underwent surgery.

Blind’s recovery time was not set but he is now fit again and can return to action against Utrecht on Sunday.

During his press conference on Friday, Erik ten Hag confirmed that the defender will start the game on the bench, “A number of steps have been taken, we will continue to monitor it. In his situation it seems logical that he starts on the bench. “
