Hammers to remain in Austria

Two bad injuries during pre-season

WesthamThe West Ham first team will remain in their training camp in Bad Tatzmannsdorf, Austria this week until they travel directly to Slovenia to face NK Domzale in the capital city of Ljubljana at the 16,155-capacity Stozice Stadium, Claret and Hugh reports.

The state of the art football camp facilities in Austria’s most Eastern province of Burgenland include a main pitch and an artificial pitch. The players are staying at the luxury Avita Resort hotel just next door.

The Hammers will make the 165 mile trip by coach for their first leg of the Europea League third qualifying round which will be played Thursday 28 July at 8.45pm CEST (7.45pm BST).

Meanwhile it has emerged that Aaron Cresswell will be out for four months after having been injured in the pre-season game against Karlsruher SC on Saturday. West Ham convincingly won the game 3-0 (Goals: Carroll, Feghouli, Fletcher) against the 2nd Bundesliga outfit, but late on a horror tackle meant that Cressie was badly inured and had to return to London for treatment.

Another Player already injured is Manuel Lanzini who should have played for Argentina in the Olympic Games in Rio, but had to fly back to London for treatment as well.

Let’s hope they both get well soon! Come on you Irons !!!
