‘Gonna Be Like A New Signing’ ‘Pray He Stays Fit’ Fans Happy To See West Ham Star Back In Action After Injury Hell

West Ham winger Andriy Yarmolenko played 45 minutes in the 3-2 friendly win against SCR Altach yesterday.

The Ukrainian international has been sidelined since October after rupturing his Achilles tendon against Tottenham but he is now building up his fitness ahead of the new season.

Supporters on Twitter are delighted to see Yarmolenko back on the pitch:



The 29-year-old will have a battle on his hands for his place on the right-wing this campaign. In addition to Michail Antonio and Robert Snodgrass, new signing Pablo Fornals can also play in the position.

Yarmolenko’s direct running and his threat from long range with his lethal left-foot will, however, give manager Manuel Pellegrini a different attacking option if he needs it.

The Ukrainian had just got into form before his season was cruelly cut short by injury last year, scoring a brace against Everton in September, as well as an assist in the 3-1 win versus Manchester United.
