Sakho scan result

sakho cross hammerDiafra Sakho’s injury problems were yesterday confirmed by a scan which sadly rubber-stamped West Ham’s s worst fears.
ClaretandHugh had already revealed that club medics feared the striker could be sidelined for several weeks by an injury sustained during the match against West Bromwich Albion.
And this morning we have learned the scan on Sakho’s back problem has now been carried out and that it confirms that early opinion.
A club source told us exclusively: “He has been scanned and it confirms our worst fears, a recurring back injury. He’s likely to be out for between two to six weeks.
There is of course a wicked irony in the situation as far as the Senegal national team are concerned who could now be without the player for their African Nations Cup campaign.
For it was whilst the player was on international duty earlier in the year that the damage was done on the treatment table according to Hammers officials.
Now, unless the striker makes a super-quick recovery, he will be missing when the tournament kicks off in Equatorial Guinea on January 17.

  1. I know you are not supossed to find humour in other people’s misfortunes but I can’t help but have a little chuckle at sakho’s injury.
    In that he will now most likely miss ACON while getting proper treatment here instead of him getting badly injured whilst away! Oh the irony!

    Just hope we can “time” the treatment of his back injury so that he is not fit untill after ACON is over or Senegal are knocked out. That way there will be less chance of their medical “experts” badly injuring him again! COYI!

  2. 2 to 6 weeks is a very big window, maybe too big. One wonders if the club are intentionally making recovery time vague so the Senegalese will drop and replace Sakho. They have options.

  3. I’m happier that we lose him to the medics room rather than AFCON. Song isn’t going either now then what can we do about Koyate.
