West Ham United can confirm that Angelo Ogbonna sustained an anterior cruciate ligament injury during Sunday’s Premier League victory against Liverpool.
A scan on Monday revealed damage to his right knee and the Italy defender has already started his recovery programme at Rush Green.
Head of Medical Richard Collinge said: “After being substituted following a separate incident that led to him suffering a cut above his eye, Angelo felt some discomfort in his right knee so 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.”
Everyone at West Ham United would like to wish Angelo a full and timely recovery.
