But he said: “Sometimes it is difficult with certain injuries to put an exact timeframe on how long a player will be unavailable for, and in those cases we try not to raise expectation by mentioning a date by which we expect a player to return.”

Despite AC laiming in a tweet that this is a sic to eight week injury Stijn declared: “In this age of 24-hour news coverage, the internet and social media, there is obviously a high demand for this kind of clarification but, on occasions, it is not possible to satisfy this demand because the return dates are too difficult to predict.

With all injuries, the initial diagnosis can tell us what the problem is and, as a medical and sport science team, we have an idea of how long an injury will make a player unavailable, but it is never an exact science.”
