PSV team doctor Tjaarda Weber emphasizes that De Jong has made much progress. "He is recovering well; he will certainly be available to play games again, when we have returned to Holland."

"Things are going better, but it takes time to recover completely. I’m making progress, though." Afellay joins the squad for training to do particular exercises, but most of the time he has his own individual training. "My ankle is still sore, but I feel fine.
