West Ham fans on Twitter loved seeing Winston Reid’s return to training

West Ham fans always seem to be contending with injury problems here and there. It comes with the territory of having Andy Carroll on their books, but is frustrating nonetheless. However, the latest update they’ve been given, from reliable Twitter account ExWHUemployee, claims that Winston Reid returned to training yesterday.

The New Zealander has written his name into West Ham history in his eight and a half years at the club, with his famous winning goal against Manchester United at the Boleyn Ground the last in the stadium’s history. However, the 2013 Hammer of the Year winner has had a rough 9th season with the club, as he continues to fight to return from a knee injury that he suffered almost a whole year ago last March.

That knee injury required surgery and always looked like being a nasty one. However, it’s taken him a lot longer than the fans believed it would for him to return and they’ll be desperate to see him make his first appearance of the season before too long. It will certainly be tough to usurp both Issa Diop and Fabian Balbuena, who have staked their claim as the club’s first choice pairing at the back, but if he can find his best form then it’s certainly not beyond the 30-year-old.

You can read the Hammers’ verdict on Reid here:

The Hammers love the idea of seeing Reid make his return to action this season and will hope the defender hasn’t lost his defensive touch that made him so formidable at the back.
