West Ham chairman David Gold gives positive update on Andy Carroll's injury

The striker is fine, insists the West Ham supremo.

West Ham United lost their final league game of the season at the weekend, going down against Stoke City.

The result means West Ham are now waiting on results from the FA Cup and Europa League finals to see whether they will be playing in the Europa League next term.

Another sour point from the game was Andy Carroll’s injury. The striker left the field holding his groin and limping with 23 minutes left of the game.

Carroll, who has not made it into Roy Hodgson’s England squad for Euro 2016 despite some recent good form, has a torrid record of injury problems and undoubtedly his limping off in the final game of the season would have had some fans concerned.

However, West Ham chairman David Gold has now confirmed it is nothing to worry about.

He wrote this message on his official Twitter account in the early hours of the morning:

Good news for West Ham and Carroll. The English striker now has the summer to relax and recharge before heading into pre-season fully-fit and raring to go.
