Manuel Lanzini speaks out about his injury ahead of West Ham return

Close to his West Ham return

West Ham United star Manuel Lanzini has been speaking about his time on the sidelines after a long-term injury problem ahead of his return to the team.

The Argentine was one of West Ham’s most influential players when he was on the pitch and it was a huge blow for them when he got injured.

He broke his knee just before the World Cup after being included in Argentina’s squad for the competition.

Though, that is all behind him now and he’s looking to get back on the pitch as soon as possible.

‘I want to be on the pitch as quickly as possible’

The Argentine has been speaking about his time out with the pitch and admitted he missed being away from the club.

Now he’s working to be available soon.

“I missed West Ham, I missed the players, all the West Ham staff and the training ground, so I’m happy to be back,” Lanzini explained to West Ham’s official website. 

“Now, I am feeling good. It was very hard when my knee was broken before the World Cup.

“Now I am thinking of the future and now I am happy.

“My knee is feeling very comfortable and stable and this is very important.

“I am taking things day by day and I am feeling good, comfortable and stable and I am ready to keep going like this and we will see.

“Now, I am working on the bike with the Bosu [balance trainer] and am doing activation and work on my quadriceps and hamstring, all in the gym.

“I think about this every day. I want to be on the pitch as quickly as possible, but I also know that the injury was bad so I need to stay calm and take things day by day. We will see what happens in the future.”
