Sakho return coincides with African Nations Cup

diafra-sakho_2drfyklhqef71my2kzqgalnltWell despite all the Hammers fingers in the world being crossed, the worst news in the world hit us this morning when the official site announced that Diafra Sakho would be out of action for six weeks.

Everybody had been hoping against hope that the  injury he sustained at Old Trafford on Saturday would prove relatively minor but this morning’s news is as bad as it gets.

And his expected return date virtually coincides with the start of the African Nations Cup so we can only hope Senegal overlook him given that he will have only played around 120 minutes football since last season.

The official site declared he is out for  six weeks after sustaining a thigh injury during Sunday’s draw with Manchester United.

It added that a scan on Tuesday revealed that the injury will keep him out of contention for up to six weeks.

Everyone at West Ham United wishes him a speedy recovery and quick return to action.”

  1. Why are all our players made of dental floss?

  2. So not a hamstring as first thought but something much worse because he has been plagued by thigh injuries which were said to be connected with his back injury. If this is a thigh injury then perhaps the root problem is not solved after all.
    My own back problem ( disc ) inflames the nerve to the right thigh, which then gives pain or virtue paralasys to the right thigh.
    I hope it’s not the same with Sahko.

  3. I don’t care how much it costs in settlements but we need to get shot of Carroll and Sakho in the summer. A team like us can’t have our best two strikers injured for the majority of games each season. The premiership is so tight these days in terms of quality it can be the difference between a top 8 and relegation battle (as we are finding this season).

    I can’t see G+S putting their hands in their pockets and going and getting our £25 million pound man so this season is going to be a long slog.

    in the short term, I just hope Carroll can stay fit for 6 weeks until Sakho is back because we badly need one of these players in our match day squad so we actually have a chance of scoring.

    Big clear out required in the summer – whether we are in the premiership or not.

  4. 100% agree with you richie

  5. “… the worst news in the world hit us this morning…”

    What world do you live in?
    75 souls perish in a plane crash, an appalling scandal of child abuse and they are just two Football related stories in the news this week, without everything else.
