Haller falls under West Ham injury curse

Sebastien Haller looks set to sit out on side lines while he recovers from a hip injury

Suggestions on social media that Haller has not featured as the club plans to sell him this summer while others have suggested Haller’s next appearance will trigger another massive payment in the deal with Eintracht Frankfurt or that West Ham has failed to pay the latest instalment have been rejected by the club as fanciful conspiracy theories.

What is true is Haller has rarely suffered from injuries in his whole career so this appears to be down to the good old fashioned West Ham injury curse. ‘He’s just injured’ a bemused club insider told us!

In 2017, Haller missed 10 days after undergoing dental surgery but his only real injury to date was in 2019 when he spent 35 days out missing 8 games through an abdominal strain.

The £45m striker is expected to return to training today but will not be fit by Wednesday to face Chelsea. With only four full days of training excluding days off and match days, Newcastle away next Sunday could also prove to be a challenge with possibility him being on the bench but Moyes is unlikely to risk him.

The medical team are thought to be targeting a full return and potential start in West Ham’s home game against Burnley on 8th July at the London Stadium in ten days time.

  1. Not surprising at all ..we have played our last 3 games with no proper striker and now we wont have him for the nxt 3 games….we really are 2 bob club ..we all said this would happen..what kind of prem side starts a season with one decent striker.. well decent might be a stretch but even so …we deserve to be relegated on that alone…

  2. 45million for a failure !! . No matter the system the manager wants to employ a player of his price should be able to turn in a good shift. . He obviously isn’t able to . Did Antonio cost millions? . We are not missing him .
    West Ham are missing Lanzini & Fornals & Anderson whom collectively fail to turn up .
    But Haller was a total waste of Money .
    Hard to blame Moyes for that no matter what some fans think . You would expect some reaction from such so-called talented players . Don’t track back , don’t get involved , don’t care .

  3. In the past, players would take an injection and play through pain to help their clubs.

    They don’t care anymore at all do they? It’s just all money.

    It’s a few games FFS. Surely he can get patched up and play a half when we desperately need him.
