Bram Nuytinck Injured, Heads Home
Jong Oranje’s Bram Nuytinck is going back to the Netherlands after sustaining a knee injury during the final Group B match against Spain in the UEFA European Under-21 Championship, leaving the Dutch team with one player out.
Nuytinck’s MRI scan result showed potential left knee damage. With this reason, he cannot go on with the championship tournament. He will return to the Netherlands for more examinations and to seek medical management at his club.
Coach Cor Pot said: "This is a real setback. It was already difficult for me with the [reserve] role I had, and to go home earlier makes it even harder. On the other hand I do not want to take any risks regarding preparations for next season with Anderlecht.
The 23-year-old RSC Anderlecht captain said that he will return to his club to undergo further tests. He hopes the best for his teammates in their next match against Italy. He is confident his team members will reach the finals.
