Hammers backing for Carroll

22 Nov 2006 - 11:43:55

West Ham United goalkeeper Roy Carroll is undergoing treatment to deal with problems of alcohol and gambling addictions.

The 29-year-old Northern Ireland international has not featured for the Hammers for more than a month and manager Alan Pardew has confirmed that Carroll is struggling with off-field issues.

He told The Daily Mail: "We are aware that Roy has problems and we are fully supporting him in any way we can.

"He has gone about tackling the issues in the right way and is seeking expert help to sort him out.

"I understand he will leave the clinic on Wednesday and will be back training with us on Thursday."

Pardew has drafted in Crystal Palace keeper Gabor Kiraly on loan to cover for the absence of Carroll.

Carroll joined the Hammers on a free transfer in the summer of 2005, having previously enjoyed spells with Manchester United, Wigan Athletic and Hull City.
