The 28-year-old Hammers play-maker surprised everyone when he returned to form whilst operating in a deep-lying midfield role against Burnley a couple of weeks ago.
Lanzini really struggled for form and fitness after suffering a serious ACL injury whilst on international duty with Argentina in the summer of 2018. The injury came at a terrible time.
So it was a real boost when the Argentinian ace put in a top class performance at Turf Moor.
He was in top form again the following week against Everton at the London Stadium.
With typical West Ham luck, however, Lanzini then hobbled off the pitch injured against the Toffees.
The 28-year-old really can’t catch a break can he? His latest injury setback would have really hurt him considering how good he looked in his new role.
Manuel Lanzini injury blow shared by ExWHUemployee
The South American may well not return before the season is done.
Ex took to Twitter to provide an injury update on Manu:
Let’s hope that Lanzini returns to his best next season. He may well still have so much to offer West Ham.
On his day, he is a technically brilliant, dynamic footballer.
Unfortunately we just haven’t seen Lanzini anywhere near his best over the past three years, aside from the odd performance here and there.
We still think Lanzini has what it takes though. Let’s wish Manu a speedy recovery and hope that he comes back in peak physical condition ready to produce his best next season.
