ExWHUemployee has revealed that West Ham United are still unsure as to whether or not they will play Nayef Aguerd in the Premier League before the World Cup – but he should again feature in midweek, writes the TIF.
Sadly for the centre-back, the first stage of his career as an Iron has been hugely hampered by a bad ankle injury picked up in a pre-season friendly match shortly after his summer transfer.
However, in better news for the player and West Ham, Aguerd finally made his first competitive outing for the club last week when he started in the Europa Conference League win over Silkeborg IF.
And in another positive update, having previously suggested the Moroccan would only be used in Europe, it seems he may yet be involved in domestic action before the World Cup.
When talking on The West Ham Way podcast, Ex said: “Aguerd, I think will play on Thursday. But they’re saying that they’re not sure whether he’ll feature in any of the Premier League games – possibly for Leicester because they want to build up his Premier League fitness.
“I think we won’t see him start in the league before the World Cup.”
