West Ham striker Diafra Sakho reassures fans after car crash

West Ham striker says he is unhurt.

West Ham striker Diafra Sakho has reassured fans he is alright after being involved in a car crash.

The Hammers forward used Twitter to thank supporters for their well wishes.

Sakho has been out of action since last year, and is not expected to be fit enough for the first team until mid-February as he attempts to battle back from a thigh injury.

Fortunately he did not sustain any further problems in the accident, and nor did anybody else, with the prang claimed to be pictured below.

It is not the first accident the Senegalese striker has been involved in since arriving in England in 2014.

Last season The Sun reported how Sakho nearly set his apartment on fire after a kitchen nightmare at his flat, which caused the entire block to be evacuated.

Sakho, 26, has featured in 12 Premier League games this season, scoring three times. He also netted twice in the Europa League early on in the campaign.
