Lucas Paquetá

Paqueta keen to prove doubters wrong

Hammer Lucas Paqueta is keen to prove the doubters who believe our inspirational midfielder could be could be out for two months with a calf injury.
The Brazilian midfielder has again been posting on social media which show him in a gym working hard to recover with no sign of the calf injury keeping him out of the West Ham first team.
Only last week he was telling people to calm down as reports of his injury grew in reports from two weeks to up to eight.
Initially, the diagnosis was two weeks and days later journalists doubled his to fight for weeks and Paqueta immediately reacted to that.
While no one is suggesting he is ready to return on Sunday to face Sheffield United from the videos it looks like his return might not be too far off. Sadly Paqueta won’t join him but he doesn’t look or sound like a man who will be out for two months.
