Enner Valencia statement

Enner Valencia has issued an apology following recent press coverage
Enner Valencia has issued a clarification following recent press coverage of an interview he conducted in Spanish with a radio station.

Valencia suffered an injury to his right leg in the Europa League match with Astra Giurgiu at the Boleyn Ground last month.

Enner Valencia said: “I have had a number of consultation meetings with specialists in London, accompanied by members of the Club’s medical staff, and they have always kept me updated me on my injury.

“It has been a frustrating time, but I would like to make clear that I have the utmost respect and confidence in the Club’s medical team and the specialists I was referred to and I would like to apologise to them and the Club for any issues arising from the recent press coverage.

“I will continue to work as hard as I can with them to return to help the team as quickly as possible, and continue the good start I made to the season.

“It is not possible to put an exact date on when I might be back on the pitch, but you can be rest assured that I am motivated to get fit and score more goals for West Ham United as soon as I can.”
