Bilic cannot rely on Carroll

Boss frustrated by striker's injuries

West Ham manager Slaven Bilic admits he cannot rely on striker Andy Carroll due to injuries.

Carroll is reportedly facing up to six weeks on the sidelines as a result of the knee injury he suffered during West Ham's Europa League play-off first-leg against Astra Giurgiu on Thursday.

The striker has been best by injury problems since moving to West Ham from Liverpool in 2013 and Bilic is frustrated by the loss of the 27-year-old for another six weeks.

"I will sign now the contract if his injury is four weeks or six weeks and, after that, good until the end of the season. I will take it," Bilic told reporters after West Ham's 1-0 defeat of Bournemouth on Sunday.

"Andy is Andy. He's dedicated now to training, to everything, it's a big blow for us, a big question mark also and big frustration with these things that are happening to him.

"The worst situation is when you plan, then you can't count on him. All the time."
