‘Thought He Was Dead’ ‘Great To Have Him Back!’ – Fans On Twitter Shocked To See West Ham Star Back In Training

West Ham defender Winston Reid was pictured taking part in training yesterday by the club’s official Twitter account.

Manager Manuel Pellegrini has previously stated that the New Zealander isn’t expected to return from a knee injury before the end of the season. However, it seems Reid is indeed on the road to recovery:

Fans on Twitter are happy to see the 30-year-old back on the training pitch:

Some, though, question whether he’ll be able to get back into the starting eleven ahead of the likes of Issa Diop, Fabian Balbuena and Angelo Ogbonna:

It’s difficult to tell how far off Reid is away from making his return to full fitness. The centre-back has been out of action for almost a year.

His last game for the Hammers was the 4-1 defeat to Swansea last March when he had to be taken off just 27 minutes into the game. Since then, he has been going through rehab after undergoing surgery back in July.
