Angelo Ogbonna May Miss Remaining Part Of Ongoing Season

West Ham United’s Nigerian-born defender, Angelo Obinze Ogbonna may end up missing the remaining part of the ongoing season, following the injury he copped last weekend against Liverpool.

West Ham’s spirited win over The Reds was soiled by the scary knock copped by the former Italian international centre back, and the London-based club have now confirmed their worst fears over the player.

However, gathered further that a timeline is yet to be fixed on when the former Juventus and AS Torino of Italy stopper is expected back in action, though sports injury experts are already forecasting a long time out.

Sky Sports noted in their report that recovery times can vary for ACL injuries, but palpable worry has already emerged that Ogbonna is set for a lengthy spell on the sidelines and could miss the remainder of this campaign.

All this comes after Ogbonna sustained an anterior cruciate ligament injury during Sunday’s English Premier League win over Liverpool, but a timeframe on his recovery remains unclear.

A scan on Monday revealed damage to his right knee, and West Ham said the Italy defender has started his recovery programme at Rush Green.

West Ham’s head of medical, Richard Collinge disclosed that complications emerged for Ogbonna after he was substituted following a separate incident that led to him suffering a cut above his eye during the game.

Collinge added: “Angelo felt some discomfort in his right knee. We scanned him to ascertain the extent of the injury.

“That scan has shown up some damage to the anterior cruciate ligament and we have begun his rehabilitation immediately.

“Angelo will see another specialist this week and we will then have a clearer picture around his timeline of recovery.”
