A bleak snow shower went over De Herdgang training base, but John de Jong was smiling brightly all the same this morning. The midfielder, who is rehabilitating from a knee injury, was back on the pitch for an individual training. After he had done some running in the wood, John de Jong was back on the training pitch, guided by PSV fitness coach Luc van Agt. “A usual procedure at this stage”, explained Van Agt. “We first did power training in the gym and we will now start the individual training sessions on the pitch. We are going to alternate that. It is hard to predict how long it will for him to make a complete recovery. We’ll just have to wait and see how he responds. We are very cautions.” De Jong is rehabilitating from a complication to his knee, because of which he has not been able to make an appearance for PSV this season. De Jong was sweating it out at De Herdgang training base this morning, because of the physical labour he was doing as well as bleak weather conditions. When he went unto the pitch, together with Van Agt, the sun was shining briefly, until suddenly another wintry shower came on. But when PSV Media asked him to pose, De Jong was all smiles!
