West Ham United center-back Angelo Ogbonna suffered an anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injury in the 3-2 win over Liverpool in the Premier League game last weekend. This is what the East London club said on Tuesday, September 11.
West Ham said scans on Monday showed damage to Ogbonna’s right knee, but stressed the Italy international has started his recovery process.
“After being replaced following a separate incident that resulted in an injury above his eye, Angelo experienced discomfort in his right knee, so we scanned him to determine the extent of the injury. “said club chief medical officer Richard Collinge.

“The scans showed damage to the anterior ligament and we immediately rehabilitated him. Angelo will see another specialist this week and after that we will have a clearer picture of his recovery time.”
West Ham rose to third in the Premier League table after beating Liverpool, which also ended the Merseyside club’s 25-game unbeaten streak in all competitions.
