Exclusive: Kehrer Injury Update

Claret & Hugh Exclusive 


Within the last hour Claret & Hugh has been exclusively informed by it’s ‘top source’ the full extent of defender Thilo Kehrer’s injury which he sustained against Newcastle United.

The German defender was withdrawn from action at half time by manager David Moyes, with many (including myself) believing the substitution was tactical. However, it has since been revealed by a senior club source that Kehrer will be unavailable for between two & three weeks.

This will certainly rule him out of the next two Premier League games against Chelsea, and away to Tottenham Hotspur the following weekend.

The injury could not have come at a worse time for manager David Moyes, following the sale of Craig Dawson to Wolves, and the injury to Kurt Zouma. As mentioned earlier on today, this does present an opportunity to utility player Ben Johnson, who I thought performed admirably in the second half at St James Park on Saturday.

One comment on “Exclusive: Kehrer Injury Update

  1. Is there some kind of ‘sick note’ culture at West Ham? It seems that players who have been criticised for not playing well somehow manage to get themselves ‘injured’ and are out of action for at least a few weeks. I think we all came to the conclusion that Kehrer was subbed at half-time against Newcastle. Now it’s his ‘turn’ for a stint in sick bay. Scamacca’s injury was also rather innocuous. Danny Ings picking up a dubious injury within 20 seconds of his first game for us takes the cake.

    Or maybe there’s a problem with training at Rush Green? Is our squad way too small? Are we not doing due diligence and buying players with dubious injury history?

    Something doesn’t seem right at West Ham.
