Lanzini facing another month off


Filed: Monday, 18th September 2017
By: Staff Writer


Manuel Lanzini - who was tipped to return against Tottenham this weekend - is unlikely to play again until the end of the next international break.

The Argentine midfielder has featured just the once for West Ham since damaging a knee during the club's pre-season tour of Austria and Germany and, according to Head Medic Gary Lewin, is unlikely to be seen again until mid-October at the earliest.

"Manuel is still on schedule in terms of his rehabilitation from the knee injury that he irritated up at Newcastle last month," Gary Lewin told whufc.com.

"He is back on the training pitches and working hard, and we are looking at him being available again after the next international break."

The 24-year-old played the entire second half of West Ham's 3-0 defeat at St James Park on 26 August having replaced Declan Rice at half time, but has been ruled out since.

He is likely to miss the forthcoming Carabao Cup clash against Bolton (Carabao Cup) and the Premier League matches against Tottenham (h), Swansea (h) and Burnley (a).
