AZ Alkmaar coach Louis van Gaal is hoping midfielder Stijn Schaars is finally on his way to recovering from a long-term ankle injury.

Schaars has been sidelined for seven months but was recently flown to the United States for specialist treatment - and Van Gaal is optimistic the player can return to the pitch in the next three months.

"Next week the treatment which has taken a month will be completed and after that he needs to recover," Van Gaal told Sportweek magazine.
