Chicharito sent home with flu

Javier4West Ham coach Alan Irvine says Hammers striker Chicharito was sent home yesterday with flu-like symptoms.

Irvine told reporters at a press conference “Chicharito came in this morning and was sent home unwell don’t know if he will be OK for tomorrow or not. It’s been described as flu. Is it flu? I don’t know, it might be a bad cold. We’ll find out tomorrow.”

Irvine added that Carroll and Sakho are unavailable for selection saying that “Andy Carroll (was) not fit yet” and “(Sakho) is injured at the moment, has been since the window opened so he’s not been on the training ground at all, I’ve seen very little of him to be honest. He is not available for selection, it is as simple as that.”

  1. That’s all 3 of them gone in January then.

  2. I wish Moyes would shut up going on about us having plenty of strikers. When was the last time- if ever- that they were all fit? And no doubt the owners are working on him now,saying that Arnie & LanIni are doing ok aren’t they & can he not leave the new striker until the summer. If one of those two, or both, get injured or suspended we are right in it.

  3. Hernandez probably does have a cold or flu, one thing throughout his career he knows how to dig in and stick out a rough patch and he is not one to cry off sick. I might be wrong but I think if Moyes can buy the players to provide a platform we could still see the best of Hernandez he is just not suited to a defensive relegation style of football, simple as that but that is what Moyes has been forced to play because the moment we open up our players are not good enough at closing down space in attack, midfield or defence.

  4. Should be no problem with Martinez getting a game, then ! I also agree with 64’s comment.
