In his latest update from the treatment room head of Medical and Sports Science Stijn Vandenbroucke reveals that Cheikhou Kouyate has been playing through chronic wrist injury, aggravated at the Africa Cup of Nations in January.
He said: “He has shown the true spirit of the Hammers by playing with this condition and given everything to the team and to the club.
Now our Premier League status has been assured, we took the decision for Cheikhou to undergo an operation on his wrist on Tuesday.
He will be in a cast for eight weeks and we wish him all the best with his rehabilitation, with a view to him returning in good time for next season.”
And he added: “Michail Antonio has also had surgery and he has started his own rehabilitation period, again working towards next season.
Diafra Sakho has had a setback with his lower back and we took the decision not to take any risks this season, so he too is working towards next season.
Finally, Andy Carroll is continuing with his rehabilitation after suffering a significant adductor strain.”
What was that about Andy Carroll becoming a bus conductor? Thought they didn’t have them any more. Oh no he’s sprained his wrist on the ticket machine.
