Van den Bergh needs surgery after getting a knee injury at amusement park
Dimitri van den Bergh has been spotted as of late with a knee brace and the reason for this has been revealed.
Van den Bergh who won the World Matchplay in July has a recurring issue with his knee stemming back three years. During a football game, problems arose and it left him with a weak spot.
During a day at the amusement park last summer, the knee gave away and it dislocated his kneecap and tore his cartilage. As a result he played with this extra support during the last two tournaments.
He has been to the doctor for this injury and while keyhole surgery has been done, he needs the tendon to be repaired and the recovery time for this is up to eight weeks. With a busy period in the darting calendar, it is unsure when 'The Dreammaker' can have this done.
