West Ham striker Michail Antonio has a knee injury that will keep him out for a long period of time, the media in England have reported.
The 33-year-old Antonio received the injury during the match of the Jamaican national team with Canada (1:2) from the League of Nations in the CONCACAF zone. The footballer was injured in the first minutes of the match, but remained in the game until the middle of the first half, because of which his club team is furious with the Jamaica Football Association.
According to the Telegraph newspaper, West Ham have sent angry letters to football chiefs in Jamaica over the decision to keep Antonio in the game following his injury, as well as the condition of the pitch in Kingston, where Saturday’s game against the Canadians was played.
Antonio is now in London, where he is undergoing tests to determine the extent of the injury. However, it is certain that he will be out for at least six weeks. However, it is also possible that it is about torn ligaments, which would take him out of action for a period of 9 to 12 months.
Since the start of this season, Michail Antonio has made 17 appearances for West Ham in all competitions with three goals in them. /BTA
