Thanks, love Andriy

Andriy Yarmolenko has thanked the entire West Ham family for their support during his lengthy recovery from injury.

The 29-year-old winger managed just 10 appearances for West Ham following his £17million summer move from Borussia Dortmund before sustaining a season-ending injury against Tottenham last October.

And having recently determined that he is extremely to play again this season, Yarmolenko took time out of his recovery to thank Hammers fans for their support in person and via social media.

"Iíve had so many positive messages from West Ham fans," he told whufc.com. "For me it really helps. West Ham supporters are really passionate and I think we, as a group of players, really appreciate that.

"I canít wait to be back and to feel this again. Itís not easy to be without football because I love it, but itís happened and you must concentrate on your recovery. Everyone is helping me - my family, my teammates and the staff.

"Here in West Ham we are one big family and itís really helped me. Now Iím only concentrating on my recovery because I want to be back soon. As a professional football player, sometimes injuries happen and you must be ready for this."

Upon sustaining the injury four months ago, the initial diagnosis - as confirmed by Manuel Pellegrini - was that Yarmolenko would be back in action for the first team around April time.

However it is understood that the Ukraine international will almost certainly have to wait for the beginning of the 2019/20 campaign before resurrecting his career in east London.
