That back injury occurred on Sunday morning, when the Brabander got out of bed. He then went to hospital, where it turned out that a nerve was pinched in his back. Van Gerwen was patched up and was able to play in the quarter finals of the World Cup. However, Team Netherlands was immediately eliminated by Germany.
Van Gerwen decided to take a few days of rest, but now feels good thanks to a treatment, he says. The Dutchman immediately has a bye in the first round of the fourth Winter Series tournament.
In the last podcast Jacques Nieuwlaat, Marcel Maijer and Co Stompé spoke about Michael van Gerwen’s injury. The analysts are afraid that the injury will return regularly and that Van Gerwen will therefore have to adjust his position.
