A video posted by striker Gianluca Scamacca of West Ham star Angelo Ogbonna in the treatment room addresses Kurt Zouma setback fears.

Injury-prone Zouma has been out since the Everton game after he suffered a small thigh tear on his return to the West Ham side from a knee operation.

There is no doubting the Hammers are better defensively with the Frenchman in the side. And West Ham boss David Moyes desperately needs him for the relegation run-in.

So some West Ham fans were understandably concerned when Zouma posted a picture of himself wearing a recovery device last weekend.

It sparked concerns on forums and social media that Zouma has suffered some sort of setback and faces a prolonged spell on the sidelines.

As reported on Hammers News, there was nothing untoward about the Zouma social media post after the West Ham star sparked protective boot injury confusion.

Now a Gianluca Scamacca video of West Ham star Angelo Ogbonna in the treatment room addresses those Kurt Zouma setback fears.

Scamacca posted a video on his Instagram stories showing Ogbonna on the treatment table wearing full leg braces as he scrolled through his phone.

And the video reiterates what we reported earlier this week, there is nothing to be concerned about for Zouma or Ogbonna because the leg braces are effectively a massage device which West Ham have been using for player recovery after matches and training for some time now.

It is a compression device that surrounds the legs and uses compressed air to massage the limb, leading to mobilised fluid and faster recovery and recuperation following intense exertion.

West Ham have been using this kind of technology since 2021 with Michail Antonio and Vladimir Coufal pictured wearing them in a feature on the recovery aid.

So don’t worry West Ham fans Ogbonna will be available for the Spurs game and let’s hope Zouma is not too far behind him in the coming weeks.
