Sam Lammers made his comeback on the PSV training field on Wednesday. The striker was sidelined for months after a knee operation.
The 22-year-old attacker sustained the injury at the end of July in the Johan Cruijff Scale against Ajax (2-0 defeat) and was operated on a few days later.
Lammers had just returned to coach Mark van Bommel's team after being hired to sc Heerenveen last season. With the departure of Luuk de Jong to Seville, he saw his chance of playing minutes increase considerably.
The striker started the season well by scoring in the match in the preliminary rounds of the Champions League against FC Basel (3-2). The people from Eindhoven then lost the return and therefore play in the Europa League this year.
Lammers was not the only attacker who dropped out of PSV. Van Bommel was also unable to rely on Donyell Malen and Steven Bergwijn in recent weeks. That led to a considerable loss of points in the Eredivisie.
The Eindhoven team occupy third place behind leader Ajax and number two AZ. The gap with the reigning national champion is eleven points. PSV will play at home against SC Heerenveen at 2.30 pm on Sunday.
The good news isn't about yet ... Sam's first steps on the pitch since a long time! 🌱 #PSVHEEAvatar
