Pedro Obiang’s absence for the rest of the season is one of the most depressing issues facing the club right now but the outstanding midfielder is refusing to let it get him down.
He has been pure class on the pitch all season – staking a big claim as Hammer of the Year – and now he is showing quality off it as he faces up to his extended absence.
He has made sure that he sent a message to the fans after being stretchered off in the 3-2 defeat by Leicester City which saw the club sing to 12th place in the Premier League.
Speaking on Twitter Obiang said: “I’m very well. “Thanks to the medical staff of the stadium and West Ham staff for the help.
“I would like to say to all the fans, friends and teammates to be calm, because I will be working to return as before or better.”
