Scamacca returns to Italy as Hammers seek compensation

Hammer Gianluca Scamacca returned to Italy for his surgery, and that is where he will remain for his recovery.

The striker confirmed via Instagram on Friday morning that he had been under the knife, posting a photo from his Italian hospital bed with the caption: “Surgery done. No doubt I’ll come back stronger than before.” 

It was later reported by Gianluca Di Marzio that Scamacca would miss West Ham’s remaining Premier league games and any further ties in Europe while he recovers from the operation.

The former Sassuolo striker picked up the initial injury to his knee while away on international duty with Roberto Mancini’s Italy side in March and has not featured for his club since then. West Ham is entitled to compensation from FIFA using the club protection scheme.

The programme compensates clubs up to a maximum of €7.5m per player per accident. The maximum of €7.5m is calculated at a daily ‘pro rata’ compensation which is payable for a maximum of 365 days after the first 28 days of disablement (initial 28 days not covered). The compensation payable is based on the fixed salary that the club pays directly to the player. Compensation does not include variable amounts, one-off payments, payments not made on a regular basis, or any bonuses, including performance bonuses.
