West Ham's Sakho facing at least two months out through injury

London, Dec. 3 (GNA/dpa) – West Ham striker Diafra Sakho is likely to be out of action for at least two months because of a thigh injury.

The Senegal international suffered the injury last weekend having only just returned from a month out of Premier League action with a similar problem.

“We are still waiting for the results of his scan, but it will definitely not be a couple of weeks,” West Ham manager Slaven Bilic told a press conference on Thursday. “Four to eight, maybe longer.

“We are waiting for the opinion of a couple of specialists. He has a bit of history with that thigh. It’s not a light one unfortunately.”

“Of course it’s a big blow. We are not bad in terms of quantity of injuries, but unfortunately they have happened to key players.”
