Of the many, many things to go wrong at West Ham this year, goalkeeper Roberto Jiménez is up there with the biggest disasters.

The Spanish goalkeeper joined the Hammers in the summer transfer window on a free transfer from Espanyol as they sought out a backup for Łukasz Fabiański.

He ended up playing more games than expected, though, with the West Ham number one picking up an injury early on in the campaign that left Jiménez as the first choice.

It was not something that worked out well, with him conceding a whopping 21 goals in 10 games in all competitions and managing just one clean sheet.

His poor form led West Ham to replace him in January, bringing back Darren Randolph  and shipping Jiménez off to Alavés.

He’s yet to feature for the Spanish side, though, and it’s not likely to happen soon either with Marca reporting he’s injured himself once again.

The newspaper says he left the Fuenlabreño training complex on crutches after injuring himself in goalkeeping exercises.

The 33-year-old has now been diagnosed with a grade one sprain and Alavés are ‘monitoring his progress’ as a ‘precautionary measure’ before determining how long he will be out for.

There’s no mention at this stage whether he could be facing a quick return to West Ham, who will be hoping that isn’t the case, as Jiménez’s terrible season continues to get worse.
