Andriy Yarmolenko, the winger of West Ham and Ukraine's national football team, suffered a bad injury, which will keep him out of the pitch for several months.
The winger had his heel tendon badly hurt in the first half of the game against Tottenham Hotspurs; he left the pitch on stretchers, Goal.com reported. The damage to the tendon is considerable, so the Ukrainian will have to skip at least six months; the current season might as well be over for him.
In this season, Yarmolenko scored two goals in ten games.
As we reported, Andriy Yarmolenko joined West Ham this summer. The Ukrainian signed a four-year contract. According to unofficial information, the transfer cost 'Hammers' around $29 million. Yarmolenko’s transfer to Borussia Dortmund last year cost the same amount of money.
'Of course, I am very happy to sign for West Ham United. West Ham is a big club with good fans and I am happy to come to play in the Premier League. The Premier League is the best league in the world and I know that an interesting project is being built here at West Ham. The team wants to achieve high things and I am excited about this challenge,' Yarmolenko said, as West Ham United quoted him.
