Hammers forced to play Zouma waiting game


By Hughie Southon

West Ham are unable to give a serious indication as to when Kurt Zouma may be ready to return to first team action.

The player has undergone surgery on the knee in which he has suffered ruptured ligaments six years ago but at this stage it is impossible to put any timetable on his return.

The official site in announcing that he has received surgery failed to do so and a key Claretandhugh insider was unable to throw any further light on that aspect.

However, he did reveal that the 28-year-old had only had a small operation so hopefully he will be back sooner later than later.

We were told: ” We have no way of knowing how long he will be out at the moment. It’s his bad knee and he’s had a small operation on it. Nobody has an answer at the moment – it’s too early to say.”

    Last winter the Irons lost Ogbonna for quite some time, now we could see a similar situation with another of our rocks in defence. Along with Aguerd, and the situation with Dawson, we just can’t get a break (no pun intended).

    So Moyes has had his pocket money cut for any more incoming players.Maybe that’s a wise move by the board. After all, the gaffer doesn’t seem to know what to do with his new signings. If he did then we wouldn’t be in the current lowly position we are in.
