Diafra Sakho Set To Be Sidelined For Four Weeks
West Ham United forward Diafra Sakho has suffered yet another injury setback with the Senegalese forward set to face up to four weeks on the sidelines.
The 26-year-old scored within two minutes in a 1-1 draw against Manchester United at Old Trafford this past weekend, with the match only his second of the campaign.
In what has already been an injury-plagued season for the forward, Sakho has suffered yet another setback with news that a hamstring problem will keep him sidelined for up to a month.
“The scan will show us how bad the injury is,” said Hammers boss Slaven Bilic. “We don’t know yet…if [he will miss] one week, two weeks, four weeks, I don’t know.”
“It’s a big blow for us. I can only hope it’s not going to be long.”
The Teranga Lions will be keeping a close eye on his progress, with the 2017 Africa Cup of Nations set to get underway in early January.
