West Ham have been boosted with the news that Diafra Sakho’s injury is not as bad as first feared, with the in-form striker been told he suffered bruising to his shoulder – and could now feature this Saturday against Stoke City.
Sakho, who has now struck seven goals in seven appearances for the club, has impressed David Gold with his work ethic.
Speaking to Claret & Hugh, Gold said “He doesn’t appear to have given his injury a second thought. He just wants to be out there playing – it’s brilliant and inspiring.
”It really is so refreshing to find a player like this. He has settled brilliantly and everybody is affected by his great attitude. He is a joy to be around.
“And to score in seven consecutive games is a near unheard of achievement. To manage that whilst still settling into a new country and culture is extraordinary. How much better can he get – we’ve struck gold.”
