West Ham United manager, Slaven Bilic has confirmed that Cheikhou Kouyate, Victor Moses and Enner Valencia returned to training on Friday.
The Croatian coach explained that he was not pleased with having to start their preparations for their Saturday EPL home fixture against Crystal Palace without the trio.
“I’m not happy because we will not be all on the pitch, some of the guys are coming back tomorrow [Friday], this game on Saturday is worrying,” Bilic said.
Valencia (Ecuador), Moses (Nigeria) and Kouyate (Mali) were on national duty during the FIFA international break and they only resumed training with their English Premier League (EPL) side a day before a league game.
“Some players are coming back tomorrow [today] – Cheikhou Kouyate, Victor Moses and Enner Valencia had a long trip, (Dimitri) Payet is back from France,” he continued.
“It is not ideal but we will have to get back immediately into the shape that we were before the international break.
However, the former Croatia senior national team head coach stated he is always happy to see his players go off and represent their country.
