West Ham manager David Moyes has revealed midfielder Pedro Obiang could return to action before the end of the season as he spent the last three months trying to recover from a knee injury.
The Spaniard injured his knee when challenged by Wigan’s Max Power during West Ham’s 2-0 loss and elimination from the fourth round of the FA Cup at the DW Stadium on January 27. It was announced he would most likely be out for the rest of the campaign due to having injured medial cruciate ligaments.
Obiang even had to travel to Spain to undergo a surgery and would return before the beginning of the next season.
However, Moyes revealed the surgery went extremely well, just as the recovery process, so the Spaniard could be back before this season is over.
“Pedro Obiang has made good progress and he could be back by the end of the season,” Moyes shared, according to football.london.
“We have a few back, Andy Carroll and Manuel Lanzini came back for the Stoke game. James Collins isn’t ready yet, so it’s probably as it was for Stoke.”
