The Telegraph reports that an investigation has revealed that Ajax Brobbey will be out for six weeks. The attacker struggles with a knee (internal) ligament tear. Coach Erik ten Hag therefore has only a few attackers left. Sébastien Haller is active with the Ivory Coast at the Africa Cup. Brobbey replaced him in the Ajax base and was on course straight away. He scored two goals against FC Utrecht and scored the opening goal against PSV. He did so after he was already injured. Immediately afterwards he was taken aside.
It remains to be seen whether Ajax will be able to have Haller again on February 6, when the next competitive game against Heracles Almelo is due. On this day the final of the Africa Cup will be held. If Ivory Coast are eliminated earlier, there’s a chance Ten Hag can field the striker again. Danilo came on as a replacement for Brobbey against PSV.
