West Ham have been handed a truly massive injury boost with Claret and Hugh claiming that Kurt Zouma is now back training on grass.
It was only 17 days ago when the 27-year-old damaged a hamstring tendon when playing against Chelsea at the London Stadium.
At the time, David Moyes and the Hammers fans were hit with the news that Zouma could be out for at least 12 weeks (The Guardian).
We reported right here on Hammers News that Zouma’s absence was due to be around 6-12 weeks. Perhaps we were just more optimistic than others, who knows? The news doing the rounds today certainly fits more in line with our prognosis though.
West Ham handed huge Kurt Zouma injury boost
Claret and Hugh reckon that the Frenchman is already training back on grass. That really is a huge boost for the Hammers considering our recent struggles.
Zouma made an instant impact at the London Stadium after swapping Chelsea for West Ham. His presence, pace and power at the back has been sorely missed since he left the pitch against his old club on December 4th.
With Zouma now back and working on grass it surely won’t be too long before he starts taking part in full contact training sessions.
Getting the towering former Chelsea centre-half back fully fit and available for selection as soon as possible will be paramount to our chances of enjoying success this season.
West Ham have had to deal with a lot of setbacks over the past six weeks or so.
Zouma returning back early would stem the tide though.
