Hammer Maxwel Cornet took to social media last week to message West Ham supporters who have been supportive of him.
Cornet wrote on Instagram “the disappointment is big … disappointed not to be able to return the love you showed me when I joined the West Ham family… the road is long but the end is near! thank you all for your many messages, rehabilitation is going very well, see you soon. Happy New Year everyone!❤️ Maxi”
Some have taken that to mean he will soon return to action but 6foot2 understands the medical experts still do not understand what the long-term solution is.
He has been receiving special injections in Paris from a specialist to loosen up his calf but an operation remains a very probable long-term outcome.
6foot2 have been told that his current condition is so rare that the specialist has only seen it twice in twenty fives of practising medicine.
