Bergwijn joins Tottenham
Steven Bergwijn made the switch to Tottenham this past January.
The Lilywhites are understood to have paid an initial €30m for the former PSV standout.
Before joining Spurs, Bergwijn was having a fruitful 2019/20 campaign in the Eredivisie, netting five and assisting 10 in 16 appearances.
The Dutchman hasn’t been as impressive in terms of goal contributions during his short stint in England. But he has still shone on several occasions for Tottenham.
The 22-year-old would mark his Premier League debut by scoring once as Jose Mourinho’s side earned a huge win against Manchester City.
Bergwijn provides injury update
Bergwijn has since made six appearances for the capital giants.
The latest of those appearances came against Burnley on the 7th of March.
The Dutch international would pick up an ankle injury in said clash, forcing him to miss Spurs’ last tie vs RB Leipzig.
Now, in a recent interview, Bergwijn has provided an injury update on himself, stating that he is making good progress, and can walk now:
“At the moment I got the kick (at Burnley), I thought it was serious. I was in so much pain and that night, I couldn’t sleep.
“I’m making progress. I can walk now, so that’s good news. It was bad, but we’re making progress and I’ll come back stronger.”
Bergwijn also commented on the current struggles the world is facing due to COVID-19:
“It’s a difficult time for everyone. I see now in Holland it’s crazy, how people have to stay at home. I don’t know… difficult times.
“We have to stay together in this difficult time, but it’s not only about us, now it’s about families and the people outside (the club).
“It’s not about football anymore. It’s about your health and that’s (most) important.”
