The news Carl Jenkinson suffered a major injury against Manchester City is desperately sad news for the player.
All the indications suggest that he will be out for at least the rest of the season, so has in all likelihood kicked his last ball for West Ham. Th e right-back, who has spent the last 18 months on-loan at Upton Park from Arsenal, hasn’t been in great form this year but no true Hammers fan can take any pleasure from seeing him hurt.
It is important to remember that Jenko is just 23-years-old and, like any young player, is going to have ups and downs while he learns his trade. Th is year has seen more downs than ups, but he still managed to change a couple of games from the bench when he replaced the more defensively minded James Tomkins such as at Bournemouth.
Although he is a born and bred Gunners fan he could never be accused of giving anything less than 100 per cent for the shirt and I’m sure all West Ham fans wish him the best for the future in his career.
