West Ham boss hopeful on Andy Carroll situation

first_img1 West Ham’s Slaven Bilic hopeful Andy Carroll will not be out for more than ‘a couple of weeks’ West Ham manager Slaven Bilic has admitted his disappointment after Andy Carroll limped off in Tuesday’s win over Bournemouth. The Hammers’ comeback victory, which sees them move above Manchester United into fifth in the table, was dampened by yet another injury to striker Carroll.The 27-year-old limped off after just 12 minutes into the 3-1 victory, with a hamstring problem, but Bilic hopes the injury is not too serious.“It is a really bad situation for us,” the West Ham boss said.“After the Liverpool win I said that he is back, he looked sharp, he looked strong and he was covering the whole pitch and terrorising the difference.“So, it is a blow but he has been working really hard. Maybe or hopefully it is not that long. Maybe it is going to be a couple of weeks but we need him.“He is disappointed because he knows he is back but if we have to choose between a knee and hamstring injury it is better to have a hamstring injury.”last_img read more
