West Ham's Andy Carroll posts video of him in training as return draws closer

The West Ham United striker is continuing his recovery from injury.

West Ham United striker Andy Carroll has posted a video of himself back in training as he steps up his recovery from knee surgery.

The Hammers front-man has been blighted by injury since arriving at Upton Park, missing huge chunks of the last two campaigns with Achilles, ankle and knee injuries respectively.

But now the 26-year-old has shown he is back on the training field as he bids to put his injury woes behind him and do what he does best – scoring the goals that will help West Ham bid Upton Park farewell in the best possible fashion.

West Ham recently discovered that fellow front-man Enner Valencia would be out of action for between 10 and 12 weeks, meaning they are currently relying on Diafra Sakho and Mauro Zarate to get Slaven Bilic’s time in charge off to the best possible start.

But Carroll could soon be joining them, as he seeks to add to the 14 goals he has scored in 56 West Ham appearances to date.

At just 26 he still has plenty of time to enjoy further success in the game, but given his previous problems he will not want to rush back and risk a relapse…which means his current training regimen is vital.
