Tore joins growing Hammers injury list


toreAssistant manager Nikola Jurcevic has said that West Ham will have to delve into the transfer market to add reinforcements after losing new signing Gokhan Tore to a knee injury.

Speaking to the press after the 2-1 loss Domzale in the absence of Slaven Bilic who was serving one match touch line ban Jurcevic said:  “Gokhan Tore was injured in training on Monday and he must have a scan. Maybe we will possibly do something in the transfer market because we need some players in some positions, because Aaron Cresswell and Manuel Lanzini are injured and cannot play for a long time.”

“Tore has hurt his knee, but we are not sure how serious, It was a very easy training, but after five minutes he felt some pain in his knee. He will have a scan on Friday and we hope it will not be serious”

    I don’t believe tore did it in training , he did it in the karlshrure game , and probably aggravated it in training and made it worse !
    Tore , lanzini , cresswell ,( sakho , Valencia , ) on way out ,Tompkins not replaced , Antonio playing out of position , byrum out of position and not up to standard yet , payet , ginge , oggbonna , not fit,
    And we haven’t got the protection from officials in Europe as proved yesterday , 24 fouls 2 yellows ? And the same next week to come ! Fingers crossed no more injury come Ffs,
    Difficult not to feel down but hey, we never do anything by halves do we?
    We need a boost in the transfer market soon before it starts to effect morale !
