West Ham’s Valencia out for 12 weeks

London, Aug 4 (IANS) English football club West Ham striker Enner Valencia will be off the field for 10-12 weeks after the prognosis on his fibula injury sustained in the Europa League match against Astra Giurgiu was announced.

The 25-year-old Ecuadorian player was told by doctors on Monday that the injury would keep him off the field for a period of two and a half to three months, reports Efe.

“The outcome is that there is now a very small chance that he will need an operation and that we instead hope to treat the injury to his fibula using conservative treatment, which we hope to start in three weeks,” Stijn Vadenbroucke, head of medical services of West Ham, said.
