Alex Kral sends comeback message to West Ham fans

West Ham midfielder Alex Kral has posted a message on Twitter suggesting he hopes to return to action shortly.

The Czech Republic midfielder was missing from West Ham’s last two matchday squads, but he has now sent a reassuring comeback message to the Hammers fans.

The 23-year-old was out of the squad after being tested positive for Covid-19. David Moyes claimed it was “strange” as the midfielder was already fully vaccinated.

Kral has taken to Twitter to send a positive message to the fans about his health. He took a picture of him posing on an exercise bike at home.

“Thank you for all your messages. I feel good and will be back soon,” the midfielder wrote on Twitter.

Delay

Kral has made just one appearance for the Hammers so far since joining the club this summer.

The midfielder impressed in the 1-0 win against Manchester United in the Carabao Cup. He is yet to feature in the Premier League.

Kral missed the games against Everton and Genk, and he is set to miss the London derby clash against Tottenham Hotspur as well, as he needs to complete the quarantine period.

Also, he probably won’t be on top of his physical shape once he returns to training, and therefore may require more time to get back into the squad.

West Ham are also missing Vladimir Coufal who is out with a groin injury. However, Michail Antonio is fit to play against Spurs.

Antonio didn’t feature in the matchday squad against Genk on Thursday, but Moyes revealed he was simply rested for the game.
