The sight of Manuel Lanzini in training with West Ham United on Wednesday was enough to send the club’s supporters into meltdown.
Lanzini has not played for West Ham this season, having picked up a serious knee injury ahead of the 2018 World Cup, which cost him the chance to represent his country, Argentina, at the biggest international tournament in the world.
The 26-year-old has been back in training for some time, however, and he is in contention to face Fulham in the Premier League on Friday night.
There is no question that the Hammers have missed the South American, who is capable of changing a match in a split second due to his immense quality.
On Wednesday, West Ham’s official Twitter account posted a picture of Lanzini in training ahead of the clash with the struggling Cottagers.
And the club’s supporters absolutely loved seeing the attacking midfielder looking ready for action.
