Daley Blind has returned to the first team after being sidelined following the diagnosis of a heart condition.

Ajax has sorely missed the ultimate utility player. Daily Blind is the veteran of this young Ajax team. His experience, as well as ability, has been a notable absence from the side.

His troubles all began when the former Manchester United player started suffering dizzy spells during Ajax’s Champions League clash with Valencia.

Blind has been out of action for over two months. Doctors have diagnosed him with a heart condition known as cardiomyopathy. Which means he had inflammation of the heart muscles.

Following all the tests and finally, a diagnosis came the remedy. Blind has been fitted with a cardioverter-defibrillator.

The surgically implanted piece of equipment will help regulate his heartbeat, correct any abnormal heart activity and intervene should anything serious such as a heart attack occur.

Ajax has been in poor form of late and their struggles have coincided with the absence of the Dutch legend.

He was seen taking part in full team training today.
