West Ham star confident of early return after latest injury blow

first_imgWest Ham star Enner Valencia says he is on the comeback trail – but admits he feared the worst when he injured his ankle against Everton.Valencia has already missed three months of action this season after sustaining knee and ankle injuries against Astra in the Europa League back in July.He returned in October as a second-half substitute against Watford but disaster struck in just his second match back when he picked up an ankle injury after a tackle by Everton’s Seamus Coleman.He has been told by an ankle specialist that the problem will keep him out of action until the New Year – but Valencia says he is working hard to come back ahead of schedule.He told whufc.com: “Thank God the injury isn’t quite as bad as initially thought. I hope to be back as soon as possible.“I was worried when the injury happened. When I clashed with the Everton player I feared it might be the same problem (as before) but it wasn’t, it was a minor ligament issue.“I’m following all the doctor’s advice and despite wearing a boot, my aim is to get back as soon as possible.“The first injury I suffered here was the first serious injury in my career, it was very tough but I was very impressed by how good the medical team are here.“They do an amazing job and I was able to return three weeks earlier than expected. Now more than ever I need to put my faith in them, continue to work hard and hopefully not get many injuries in the future.” 1 Enner Valencia last_img
