No surprise as Sakho ruled out for season

Diafra Sakho will not play again this season after sustaining yet another 'back injury'.

The Senegal striker, who has appeared just four times for West Ham this season due to a succession of mysterious ailments was finally ruled out for the rest of the season by Slaven Bilic during his pre-match press conference this morning.




"At the beginning of pre-season Sakho got injured," said Bilic. "He came back and did his hamstring, and was out for four or five months after an operation.

"Now he has got another problem. Its really a problem. Hes not fit for tomorrow, it's his back again. Unfortunately he is out for the season. Hes been very unlucky."

Sakho's first appearance this season came against Friday night's opponents Tottenham last November, a match in which he lasted 61 minutes before being replaced by Simone Zaza.

The following week he scored his one and only goal this season in a 1-1 draw at Manchester United - a match in which he managed a whole 66 minutes.




A further five months passed before the 27-year-old forward returned as a 64th-minute substitute in the 3-0 defeat at Arsenal.

His fourth and final appearance this season - and almost certainly his last for the club - came as a second half sub in the goalless draw with Everton at the Olympic Stadium a fortnight ago.
