Ajax have confirmed that Edgar Davids has broken his leg.

The veteran midfielder picked up the injury during a pre-season friendly against Go-Ahead Eagles – which was later abandoned due to crowd violence.

Davids, 34, is expected to be out of action for three months.

“Edgar Davids has broken the shin bone in his left leg in the abandoned friendly match against Go Ahead Eagles on Saturday,” said the Ajax statement.

“The midfielder is expected to be sidelined for at least three months.”
