Enner Valencia sends message to West Ham fans

Enner Valencia is currently out of action due to injury.

Enner Valencia has endured a tough season this year due to injury, but he has sent a message to the West Ham supporters who have stuck by him despite his problems whilst speaking to the official club website.

The Ecuadorian attacker said: “I have received so many supportive messages recently on my social media profiles, saying things like ‘I hope you get back soon’ and ‘We would like you back as soon as possible’. The support has been absolutely fantastic so I would like to thank them for that.”

Valencia has played just three games this season after a solid debut campaign with the Hammers, getting injured on his first game of the term in the Europa League.

He scored against Astra before being substituted off after 37 minutes, and was then out of action until the end of October, when he played 45 minutes against Watford, and then 19 minutes against Everton the week after.

He picked up another injury in the game against Everton, and has been ruled out of action until the start of the New Year, but fans have continually shown their support for their injury struck forward.

He has received a number of messages from supporters who are keen to see Valencia back in action and playing for the Hammers again, and the forward has thanked everyone who sticking by him in recent months.

This was supposed to be the year in which Valencia made the step up from occasional talent to consistent Premier League star, and it is unfortunate that his season has been disrupted by two major injuries which mean he will not be at top form until next year.
