West Ham defender Reid speaks about ‘annoying injury’.
Speaking to Radio Sport in New Zealand, the All Whites captain said: “Hopefully I can get back as soon as possible and it shouldn’t be too long. It was an annoying injury to pick up, especially in the last five minutes of the game but I’m lucky enough it wasn’t something more serious.”
Bilic had previously said: “On paper, he should be back in training after a couple of weeks from the injury, but then I’ve seen many times, for some reason, grade one become grade two in no time and by doing nothing.” “I can only say what the medical team tell me which is grade one. They didn’t say 100 per cent back for Spurs but they said there’s a good chance for him to be back.” essexlive.news
