‘Our Jewel’ ‘Great News’ – West Ham Fans Delighted As Pellegrini Confirms Argentine Magician’s First Team Return

Manuel Lanzini could be ready to face Fulham according to manager Manuel Pellegrini.

The Argentinian international has been building up his fitness in the past few weeks after completing his rehabilitation for the anterior cruciate ligament injury he sustained last year.

Fans on Twitter are excited to hear that Lanzini will soon be back in action for the first team:

The Argentine magician picked up the injury whilst on international duty in the build-up to the 2018 World Cup back in June.

His creativity has certainly been missed in the Hammers’ frontline, and supporters will no doubt be highly anticipating his link-up play with the likes of Felipe Anderson.

Of course, it will take Lanzini a while to find his best form once again. The 25-year-old has been out for the best part of eight months and Pellegrini will likely ease him back into the first team.

Fans should probably expect the midfielder to get 10-15 mins as a substitute when West Ham face the Cottagers at the end of the month.
