Missing West Ham United star Alex Kral has sent a reassuring and positive comeback message to the club’s fans on social media.

Kral has been missing from the last two West Ham squads.

And David Moyes revealed the ‘strange’ reason for his absence was that he tested positive for Covid-19 despite being fully vaccinated.

But he impressed in the 1-0 Carabao Cup win at Manchester United.

Kral was absent from the squad for wins over Everton and Genk.

And he looks set to sit out the game against Tottenham too as he completes his 10-day isolation period.

Having tested positive for Covid there was also the risk the West Ham midfielder could develop symptoms which delays his comeback further.

What Moyes said on Kral

“Alex Kral tested positive (for Covid-19) but has been injected (with the vaccine) he’s had his injection,” Moyes said in his post Everton press conference (Football London).

“So it was a strange one for us that he tested positive on Thursday.”

It is not clear whether Kral’s Czech mate Vladimir Coufal will return to face Spurs having also missed both games with a groin injury.

But Ryan Fredericks is back.

In terms of Covid, there was false positive news for West Ham ahead of the clash with bitter rivals Tottenham last week.

That’s after it emerged two Spurs stars – named online as striker Son Heung-min and Bryan Gil – who were expected to miss the West Ham game following positive Covid tests will actually now be available.
