West Ham United co-chairman David Gold gives Andy Carroll injury update, comments on Ravel Morrison

West Ham United co-chairman David Gold comments on the injury of Andy Carroll and on the loaning out of Ravel Morrison.

West Ham United co-chairman David Gold has some good news for the fans on the injury front.

England international striker Andy Carroll has been sidelined with an ankle injury so far this season, but he could return to action as early as November.


Carroll has been injury-plagued since his permanent move to West Ham from Liverpool in the summer of 2013 after playing on loan for the Hammers for the 2012-13 season.

However, the 25-year-old missed the first half of the 2013-14 campaign with a heel problem and picked up an ankle ligament injury in pre-season ahead of this term.

One West Ham player who is fully fit but will not play for the London club until the end of December (at least) is midfielder Ravel Morrison.

The 21-year-old former Manchester United youngster has been sent out on a three-month loan deal to Championship outfit Cardiff City.

A day after West Ham lost 2-1 to Manchester United at old Trafford in the Premier League, Gold was asked on social networking site Twitter why Morrison was let go.
