West Ham United’s first football team, goalkeeper Ukasz Fabianski, has been missing for a long time after he suffered a facial bone fracture during his team’s victory over Nottingham Forest in the English Premier League, Saturday.
David Moyes, coach of the team, spoke before facing Manchester United in the fifth round of the FA Cup, on Wednesday, and told a press conference: “He suffered a fracture in the bones of the face and eye socket.”
He added, “We do not know completely whether he will undergo surgery or will heal normally, and we do not know the time period.”
Fabianski’s injury will be a heavy blow to West Ham, who are just two points out of the relegation zone with the last 14 games to go.
The 37-year-old has started every Premier League game this season.
West Ham will thus rely on substitute goalkeeper Alphonse Areola, who participated against Forest after Fabianski was injured. Moyes added, “It is a strong blow for us, for the goalkeeper and for his career as well.”
